What We Do:
MANNA is a non-profit organization that cooks and delivers nutritious, medically-appropriate meals and provides nutrition counseling to neighbors who are battling life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, renal disease, and HIV/AIDS. Through our delivery of 3 meals a day, 7 days a week, MANNA provides hope and nourishment to the Greater Philadelphia area and Southern New Jersey.
Volunteers are the heart of MANNA; each year 4,200 caring neighbors chop, cook, dice and deliver meals – enabling MANNA to provide all meals and counseling FREE OF CHARGE.
The Power of Food as Medicine:
A recently completed study by the OMG Center for Collaborative Learning demonstrated the health benefits of MANNA’s medically modified diets. MANNA can now point to the healing support our medically modified diets provide those who are seriously ill. Our clients routinely report increased energy, improved weight, better tolerance of medication and less stress over preparing meals.

Our Mission Statement:
Especially for people at acute nutritional risk due to life-threatening illness, MANNA (Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance) prepares and delivers delicious nourishing meals and counsel, empowering individuals to battle illnesses and improve their quality of life.
