WRHCF presents check to Manna Food Pantry

The Worthington Regional Healthcare Foundation presented a check for $61,896.40 to the Manna Food Pantry in Worthington on Wednesday. The Manna Food Pantry held a food and donation drive during the month of March and were able to raise $31,896.40 and with a matching grant of $30,000 by the WRHCF, the total donation pushed past the $60,000 dollar mark. Worthington Regional Healthcare Foundation Executive Director Jeff Rotert said the Foundation board believes this grant meets their mission and helps continue to provide needed food for adults and children in our area.  Needed food that they may go without if the food shelf was not available. Manna Food Pantry Coordinator Linda Sanchez says she is overwhelmed by the support of the Worthington community.

“With this match we are able to supply our shelves with the much needed products to keep our food pantry operating for the families in need in Nobles County. Everyone is fully aware of the rising costs of groceries at the stores these days & we also are experiencing that cost increase. It's because of the wonderful support such as this, the families that utilize our pantry have a larger selection of items to chose from. We try and have available some foods for the different cultures that we serve.

Thank you to the WRHCF & the Worthington Community for making this a great year for the Manna Food Pantry!
