NLCS Office Staff Donate 454 Pounds of Food to Manna

November 24, 2016

While it is a season of thanks for many, the holidays can also be a difficult time of year. It is that spirit that spurred National Lutheran Communities & Services' (NLCS) office staff to collect canned goods and non-perishable items for those in need.

The team collected $580 worth of items, amounting to 454 pounds of food donated to Rockville-based Manna Food Center on Monday, Nov. 21. Food items included canned corn and green beans, soup, peanut butter, apple sauce, macaroni and cheese, and a variety of cereal, amongst others.

Manna Food Center provides food to 5% of all Montgomery County residents. As the main food bank in Montgomery County, the majority of all local non-profit and government organizations rely on Manna to provide the food essentials their clients need.

Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. For more information on how you can donate to Manna Food Center, please visit
