Give Back Tahoe: Project MANA provides much-needed hunger relief

Special to the Sun

Brian Hunt, Jennifer Montgomery, John Rarick, Max Weintraub and Greg Holm volunteer their time for Project MANA.

Project MANA is North Tahoe & Truckee's sole hunger relief organization, providing food to nearly 3,000 individuals per year in our community for the past 25 years.

Our mission is to reduce the incidence of hunger and its detrimental effects upon individuals, families, the community and the region. Project MANA serves working families, the homeless, and anyone who could use a little extra help.

The supply of supplemental, nutritious food that community members receive from Project MANA helps them allocate their money to other living expenses, such as rent, medical expenses, gas, or bills.

Project MANA's main programs include weekly mobile food distributions with fresh food, a home delivery program, and an outreach program that connects the people we serve to other resources and services in the area.

Project MANA recently relocated our warehouse facility to Truckee and due to our relocation; we are still in need of financial contributions to cover our increased operational expenses.

There are many ways to get involved in fighting hunger in North Lake Tahoe & Truckee: you can spread awareness of food insecurity in our community by donating your time, money, or non-perishable food. Please contact Project MANA at 775-298-4161 or visit our website at http://www.projectmana.org if you are interested in giving.

Project MANA is a huge support in our community members lives; one woman who received services expressed her gratitude: "I just wanted to thank your entire organization for all it does, including the donors, of course. Even though I am not destitute, it was suggested to me by an associate that I go to Project MANA after a difficult 4+ years of medical issues that utterly destroyed my life and took pretty much everything I ever worked for. Every little bit helps, and you are really helping me during this time."
