Tahoe-Truckee community briefs: ‘Project MANA-TEA’ spaghetti feed Jan. 16
The +Impact School and Tahoe Expedition Academy (TEA) are teaming up with Tahoe-Truckee hunger relief agency Project MANA to create Project MANA-TEA.
The goal of this year-long project is to stamp out hunger in the region by raising 1 pound of food and $1 for every Kings Beach resident, for a total of $3,796 and 3,796 pounds of food.
The Project MANA-TEA drive will kick off on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service to help local families. Students and staff at +Impact School and TEA will host a community-wide spaghetti feed Monday, Jan. 16, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club, 8125 Steelhead Ave., Kings Beach.
Community members are invited to share a meal, and the suggested donation is $5 and 1 can of food per person. All food donations and proceeds will go to Project MANA for distribution to the local community. Visit tahoeexpeditionacademy.org or projectmana.org to learn more.
