Weekend Distribution on 2nd Saturday of Every Month
The struggling economy continues to make it difficult for thousands of Montgomery County residents to put food on the table. Manna Food Center is responding to this increased need by adding a new weekend food distribution option.
The next weekend distribution will be May 10, 2014.
Weekend food distribution hours will occur on the second Saturday of every month, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Main Warehouse, 9311 Gaither Road, Gaithersburg, MD.
Manna has seen a dramatic increase in the number of working families and individuals in need of food assistance. Work schedules make it challenging for many to pick-up food during Manna’s weekday distribution hours. Additionally, many rely on others for transportation to gain access to food distribution sites. This new weekend distribution will assist people whose work schedules or transportation issues prevent them from getting the food assistance they need to make it through these tough times.
To receive food at the Saturday distribution, Manna must receive client referrals no later than the 3 p.m. the Friday before distribution.
