Pantry Details, hours, photos, information: Manna on Meridian Talllahassee

Manna on Meridian is a joint ministry of congregations on Meridian Road in Tallahassee. The idea is simple: to give nutritionally balanced bags of groceries to anyone who comes to our monthly distributions. No questions to answer, no forms to fill out - just sharing the gifts that God has given us.

The ministry operates out of Faith Presbyterian Church, at John Knox Road and Meridian. The idea was born in 2009 through the people of Faith and the people of St. Stephen, which is next door to Faith. By 2010 it had grown to include the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tallahassee and Saint Paul's United Methodist Church, both of which are also on Meridian. People from other churches, not on Meridian, also have asked how they can help.

Each week, congregation members bring whatever nonperishable food items they can to church, and those items are added to the Manna pantry. During the month, volunteers go shopping with donated funds to supplement food donations. Volunteers also get the bags of groceries ready for distribution. Then, on the third Saturday of each month, people who need grocery assistance come by the Manna pantry at Faith. (So far, we've relied on word of mouth, and it has worked well.) Each household is allowed one bag of groceries. The doors stay open from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. We generally distribute from 125 to 150 bags of groceries. Those who volunteer for Manna say these activities acquaint them with a host of new people, whether those people are bagging groceries, distributing them or taking those groceries home.

Behind the scenes, of course, are volunteers overseeing Manna, encouraging volunteers and helping the program evolve and become more visitor-friendly. Other volunteers have begun coming up with fundraising ideas - such as a summer 2010 recital that (including matching money from Thrivent) attracted more than $2,500 in donations for Manna. God bless the volunteers, the shoppers, the recipients, everyone involved!

Our target foods: Peanut butter, spaghetti sauce, pasta, dried beans, cereal, instant milk, canned meat/fruits/ vegetables/soup. (No glass containers, please.)
