MANNA is grateful for the incredible support of Philadelphia-area businesses. Our partnerships with socially-minded corporations directly support our programs, allow us to expand our client base, and continue to deliver complete nutrition to those who need it most. MANNA’s corporate sponsors are a diverse group of companies and organizations with the common goal to support the Greater Philadelphia area through partnership. We strive to build sponsorship opportunities that offer our partners high visibility, and build custom marketing plans based on collective goals. We offer corporate sponsorship opportunities for each of MANNA’s high profile events, as well as year-round programmatic sponsorships.
