Volunteer at MANNA

Since 1990, MANNA Volunteers have come together from all different backgrounds to help prepare food, pack containers, and deliver meals directly to the doorsteps of Philadelphians living with serious illnesses. United in our 10,000 square foot kitchen, volunteers contribute their time, skills, and (the secret ingredient) care into our client’s medically tailored meals.

MANNA is an essential service that relies on volunteers like you! See below to learn how you can get started with volunteering at MANNA.

Volunteer Shifts Calendar:
Monday: 7-10am, 10am-1pm, 1-4pm, 5-8pm

Volunteering in the kitchen is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Create an account on our volunteer website
  2. Complete the new volunteer orientation online or in person (offered at MANNA every other Monday)
  3. Schedule volunteer shifts using our online calendar! The calendar will become visible once a MANNA team member confirms you have completed your orientation

To learn more about our safety protocols, facility, and what to expect before and during your volunteer shift, please visit our Volunteer FAQs page.

For questions or concerns, contact Jared Oppelt, Manager of Community Engagement, at JOppelt@mannapa.org or (215) 496-2662 x3.
