Volunteers help to pack our Smart Sacks bags. Volunteers walk up and down the warehouse pulling food from the shelves to pack individual bags of nonperishable food. These bags are distributed to students and their families through MCPS each Friday. Manna provides 7,000 bags each week.

To allow for social distancing, groups may have up to 6 volunteers. Volunteers are required to wear masks while in the warehouse. Masks will be provided if volunteers do not have one.

All volunteers must be 16 or older and be able to work independently.
