MANNA Food Pantries

Standard

I hope you’ve all stayed safe and as dry as possible with all of the crazy weather that’s been going on this week.

First it was tornadoes hitting WAY too close to home and then it was massive storms and record flooding where I currently live… It’s been an interesting week to say the least.

With the weather so beautiful today it’s hard to believe how terrible it was Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.  I’m super thankful that we came through the Florida Panhandle’s flooding unscathed, but unfortunately, not everyone was so lucky…

The area around Pensacola and Gulf Breeze area took on a tremendous amount of water and considerable damage during Tuesday night’s storms.  Countless homes, businesses and major roadways were impacted and now the recovery phase is underway.

One of the area’s largest non-profit food banks, MANNA Food Pantries, had to cease operations due to extensive damages they sustained in the storms and flooding. MANNA plays a huge role in alleviating hunger in the Gulf Coast community.  They are a vital resource to families and individuals and in the wake of such devastating weather, they are needed now more than ever.  Thankfully, there has been an outpouring of support for MANNA from local businesses and organizations.

If you have the means, please consider supporting MANNA.  The following links detail some of the community efforts aimed at getting the non-profit back up and running and ways you can help out:
