Manna House was founded in 1992, as a result of a joint effort between Midlothian Middle School Problem Solver team and Midlothian Pastoral Alliance. It was determined that food pantries and benevolence ministries could be administered better in one central location. Manna House currently has five full time employees. It was designed to provide short term assistance with food, clothing, utility bills, rent, transportation, and medical care for people in need in our community. For more information click here.
