In CT 1 in 5 CHILDREN face HUNGER!

Food insecurity exists in our community more than one would expect; and surprisingly, one in five children face hunger and food insercurity. Hunger exists - 12 months a year.

Neighbors living in the greater Wallingford/Meriden communtity may utilize a plethora of programs offered at Master's Manna such as; food pantry, Family Dining Center, primary health care, behavioral health/substance abuse counseling, laundry/shower facilities and education/vocational training. Master's Manna is also an approved site to complete community service hours for schools, faith community, court and scouting.

Our goal is to provide the tools necessary to move individuals from dependency to self-sufficiency. This can only be accomplished when a community stands together to support those in need. We humbly seek the support of the corporate and private citizens to continue these meaningful services which deliver HOPE to over 3200 local individuals. We invite all to join us in the realization that every donation to Master's Manna makes a difference in the life of a child, a senior citizen, a veteran and a working family -IMMEDIATELY.

Please help us to continue to provide a SAFETY NET for all these indivisudals.

Thank you,

A Season for Thanksgiving
Master’s Manna, Inc. is safety net nonprofit organization established in Wallingford, CT to serve homeless, near homeless, low to moderate income families and individuals living in the greater Wallingford/Meriden CT area to obtain life’s essential needs.
As Thanksgiving approaches, everyone at Master’s Manna is busily preparing and planning the logistics of how to accomplish all that is needed to assure every individual at Master’s Manna has access to the foods to set their table for a family centered holiday. Our Staff and Volunteers not only provide a wholesome harvest for all these holiday feasts; they also share the blessings of caring and belonging to every person who walks through the door. Love and compassion flow as they consider not only the needs of our community, but also the limitations of our resources.
As we arrange and organize the facility for Turkey Tossing Tuesday on November 22nd, we ask once again for your kindness and generosity as we literally “toss turkeys” to fill over 400 holiday baskets for those who may otherwise be hungry and alone. Throughout the bus-i-ness of these activities everyone’s hearts are warmed as we share of ourselves to assure no one goes without the
Due to the growing population served by Master’s Manna, we ask you to open your hearts, and be generous with your resources. As Theodore Roosevelt once stated: “Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.”
As we approach the holiday season, many face not only the challenge of hunger, but also the added burden of a New England winter season. We ask you to support Master’s Manna from your resources with your heart, your words of encouragement, and your deeds. Please share our request for assistance with your families and friends. Post our Go Fund Me story on your Facebook page and other social media networks.
Every financial donation made to Master’s Manna makes a difference in the life of a child, a senior citizen, a VET, a working family – IMMEDIATELY.

Thank you,

This community has watched Master’s Manna grow from a tiny food pantry to an organization that has tried to meet as many needs for as many people as possible in imaginative and innovative ways. Master’s Manna has been blessed for almost ten years with a generous, supportive, and caring community.

Master’s Manna’s contributions to the community go well beyond food, clothing, and household goods. While paid staff is tiny; their work ethic is astounding. Much of the work on site is done by volunteers, from special needs students to high school, college, and graduate students, veterans, seniors, those doing court-ordered service, churches & synagogues, the unemployed, Girl/Boy Scouts, the lonely, the mentally ill, corporate volunteers, and many others. In addition, Master’s Manna contributes positively to the environment by reclaiming much of the food it distributes from local businesses, purchasing the remainder at a discount from our partner, Connecticut Food Bank. It is a wonderfully efficient, non-standard model.

Most organizations that grow as fast as Master’s Manna has over the last 10 years reach a point where a couple of steps back are needed. At ten years, Master’s Manna is re-imagining itself, searching for a smaller facility, and reconciling itself to the fact that trying to meet every need that arises is not realistic – no matter how venerable. We appreciate the fact that any new area of expansion has to be teamed with a program that is adequately funded.

We hope you will join us in supporting Master’s Manna: by generous giving, by volunteering, by donating, and by helping find a new home to enable Master’s Manna to continue to serve the surrounding communities. We thank you for your past and future contributions. It is with sincere and heartfelt appreciation, that we acknowledge how very important each donor is to the ongoing success of Master’s Manna. Together, we can build a stronger community by working to eliminate hunger and food insecurity.
Thank you for all you are doing!!
