Manna Food Project to Reopen Since Start of Pandemic

A popular northern Michigan food pantry is reopening after closing for the pandemic.

Starting April 1, the Manna Food Project in Harbor Springs will once again be accepting food donations from the public as a part of their Food Rescue Program.

The Food Rescue collects surplus food from local grocery stores and the public and passes it on to people in need.

After a year-long pause they decided that lower numbers and vaccine progress meant it was time to reopen.

They just ask that you’re careful about what you donate.

“We really prioritize lean meats, fruits, and vegetables even from the garden. Low sodium, no added sugar canned products. Stuff like that. Stuff that you want to eat we encourage you to donate to others,” said Jessyca Stoepker.

To donate, drop off your extra canned goods to their Harbor Springs facility at McBride Court, or call in advance for a contactless exchange.
