Letter of Determination is not available for this organization.
With 26 years of food banking to draw upon, Kitty Schaller has directed MANNA FoodBank for three years. Previously at MANNA, she held the position of Director of Development. While at the Community FoodBank of NJ as Associate Director, she was responsible for food sourcing and food industry strategic partnerships. Not surprisingly she sees food raising and fund raising among the FoodBank's priorities, along with improved hunger awareness and better use of government programs. Community involvement has been and remains a key strength of MANNA FoodBank, and her staff will continue to value the contribution of thousands of volunteers. Kitty's passion for the hunger movement dates to the early 70's when she raised money for poverty programs and dedicated herself to the pursuit of public policy to seek positive change for those in need.

Manna Food Bank Programs
- Population Served:
In addition to distributing food to agencies from our warehouses in Asheville and the branch in Franklin, MANNA operates several direct service programs, such as: MANNAbundance BackPack Program which delivers healthy food to school-identified children in need on Fridays for their families over the weekend. Mobile Delivery - Through our Setting Rural Mountain Tables initiative, MANNA is able to provide bulk food delivery to agencies in every county on a biweekly basis at a tiny handling cost. Food Stamp Outreach intends to increase the level of enrollment for eligible individuals and families. At the start, only 1/3 of the 115,000 client population of MANNA partner agencies were receiving food stamps.
Program Long-Term Success:
MANNA FoodBank distributed nearly 6 million pounds of food to our network of Western N.C.agencies (enough food for over 13,500 meals, each day of the year) and 496,000 pounds to other Feeding America food banks in N.C. and nearby states. MANNA engaged volunteers for 24,000 hours for various projects including food sorting, mailing preparation, special events, and agency capacity building activities. The food was donated by the food industry, the State of North Carolina, the US Department of Agriculture, other food banks, and community food drives.
