That’s a wrap! Thank you to all who made our 2022 Heroes Against Hunger Award Ceremony a success. 

Celebrating Heroes In Our Community

Manna Food Center’s Heroes Against Hunger Awards Reception honors leaders in our community who are making a difference in the fight against hunger.

Manna recognizes community champions in the fight against hunger in three categories – Individual Hero, Corporate Hero & Community Hero. The award winners, chosen by Manna’s Board of Directors, demonstrate a true passion for fighting hunger and feeding hope in Montgomery County.


2022 Honorees 

Community Hero:
The Montgomery County Food Security Task Force

The Montgomery County Food Security Task Force was created in response to the pandemic and is composed of dedicated partners of the “food systems” world, government agencies, generous individual donors, and members of the not-for-profit community. The FSTF aims for a “whole community” approach to tackling hunger within Montgomery County. Through the coordination of funds allotted by Montgomery County and the private sector, the FSTF has guided investments into many branches of the food system, intending to address the Covid emergency and chart a course toward recovery.

Individual Hero:
