Karen A. Goldberg

Smart Sacks grew immensely under the guidance of its former director, Karen A. Goldberg. Karen was instrumental in spearheading the program’s creation and was an incomparable advocate for hunger relief. In October 2012, Karen passed away after a valiant fight with cancer. In her honor, Manna renamed the program as the Karen Goldberg Smart Sacks Program. Karen’s warmth, selflessness and leadership will forever be missed by those of us at Manna and by countless members of our community.  We salute community partners such as Sodexo, Whole Foods and Medstar Montgomery for sponsoring portions of the Smart Sack program.  As little as $6 provides a family a bag full of food.  Help us continue the legacy of Karen Goldberg by ending childhood hunger.
