The Full Story
Mobile Manna partners with various groups to alleviate one of the significant gaps in services in our community through a mobile meal ministry. Setting up in various low-income neighborhoods, non-profit organizations, and areas of town, we provide a nutritious, hot meal to those who most need it. We serve quality, homecooked meals that are hearty and healthy while allowing people some choices to select which meal appeals to them. By coordinating with other entities in our city such as the Tupelo-Lee County Hunger Coalition, St. Luke's Food Pantry, United Way, Salvation Army, Tree of Life Clinic, etc., we pinpoint areas of need and target those areas to best utilize our resources. We also build upon those existing relationships and hopefully create additional opportunities to interact.
Our mission is to reach out to people in our community who might need the comfort and love that a good meal and a good family can provide. We want to take the love and sense of family we have here at Wesley UMC and spread that to people outside the walls of our church.
Our very own Randy Davis had this ministry placed on his heart and through much prayer and preparation, we have been able to obtain the resources needed to get this ministry off the ground running! We are continuing to pursue new venues for this ministry and look forward to all God has in store!
