As a non-profit organization, MANNA depends on a wide range of funding streams that make it possible for us to provide nourishment to those who need it. The majority of MANNA’s client services are funded thanks to philanthropic support from individuals, foundations, and corporations as well as MANNA’s special events. Some of MANNA’s clients – approximately 35% – are covered by their insurers, who reimburse MANNA for providing therapeutic meals and nutrition counseling.
MANNA has always known that food is medicine and that by providing nourishment we help our clients heal. Now, insurers have seen the data to prove that food is truly a part of effective treatment, and have begun collaborating with MANNA to provide our program to their members. Through these contracts MANNA receives reimbursement for select clients referred and covered by these insurers.
