MANNA has 11 different diet modifications to meet clients’ nutritional needs. A client can receive up to 3 diet modifications at once. However, MANNA meals are not vegan or vegetarian, kosher, nut-free, macrobiotic or gluten-free.
MANNA cannot eliminate specific food items provided in the meal program – though preference diets are available and we can accommodate no beef, pork, or seafood preferences. We target our nutrition towards clients’ specific dietary needs.
MANNA has three ways to accommodate decreased appetite:
- MANNA offers deliveries every other week
- Small portion dinner entrees are available
- MANNA’s supplemental program provides dinner entrees only
Unfortunately, we cannot increase our portion sizes or options to provide more food than provided in our standard diet.
MANNA offers either the complete nutrition program which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert daily, or the supplemental program which offers just the dinner entrees each week.
MANNA clients receive meal delivery once each week on the same day each week. If you happen to forget your delivery day or need to make changes, contact our Distribution department at (215) 496-2662 x2. MANNA delivers between the hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm Tuesday through Friday.
