Volunteer Drivers & Their Incredible Impact in 2020

Following a year like no other, we wanted to take a moment to recognize the amazing impact that our volunteer drivers has had across our 16 county service area.

In 2020, our dedicated and passionate members of the MANNA Volunteer Driver Team have…

• Worked in pairs to complete 385 MANNA Express trips, where over 1,204,880 lbs. of food was distributed to across WNC.

• Assisted MANNA staff on 134 MANNA Community Market food distributions that have helped over 55,000 individuals who faced food insecurity this year.

• Completed over 45 fresh milk deliveries to partner agencies in 4 different counties on a weekly basis.

• Travelled over 5,472 miles (roundtrip) to Sylva, NC on a weekly basis to pick up fresh bread for our partner network. 48 total trips of this nature were completed this year.

• Interfaced with partner agencies and food recipients with genuine respect and dignity.

On behalf of MANNA FoodBank and our partner network, we thank each and every one of our volunteer drivers for their service to MANNA and to those in need across our mountains.
