At Manna on Main Street, there's one thing we know for sure: Our volunteers are simply AMAZING!
Every day, our dedicated helpers do everything they can to make sure that Manna runs smoothly. Some volunteers bring food, while others come to Manna's kitchen to serve dishes to our neighbors. Some volunteers donate healthy afterschool snacks, while others help guests bag and carry their groceries. Whether they are Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, summer volunteers, retired friends or service groups, Manna is grateful for the unique talents of each volunteer.
If you would like to serve in our food pantry, soup kitchen or help our team with special projects, please contact our Volunteer and Community Outreach Associate, Anthony Tarzia,
or 215-855-5454 (email is preferred). We welcome volunteers age 13+. Volunteer groups are also welcome! Groups interested in volunteering should contact
Anthony at least one month in advanced in order to secure desired date(s). Additionally, when groups come to Manna to
volunteer, we will arrange for a separate orientation on their day of service.
