The results are in
Every year, MANNA conducts a client satisfaction survey based on the Performance Outcome Measurement Project, a validated survey tool supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The survey gives clients the opportunity to provide feedback on all aspects of the MANNA program, including food quality, delivery, packaging, nutrition education, and how they view the impact of MANNA’s services on their own health. MANNA then uses the results in our efforts to continually enhance our program. To date, we have received over 200 responses from our clients and are thrilled to share the results.
