Letter: Tired of solitude? Join Manna meals


If you are tired of eating alone at home, come join us at Manna.

This is not just a soup kitchen for the poor, but a place to find new friends, whatever your income is.

I have enjoyed going to Manna Meals on Fridays at Sweet Home United Methodist Church, at the corner of Juniper Street and 6th Avenue, since I read a story in The New Era a few years ago.

I encourage others to come and see for themselves. Yes, there are many varieties of people to choose from.

The food is collected from the school cafeterias and served on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings at 5 p.m. You never know what you will get, but it is all good. This is what the school kids get? Hmmm, not bad!

They have never run out of food, but sometimes do run out of people, so let’s open up a new “can of friends” and use up all this good food.

The kitchen is in the rear, so park in the back parking lot, off Juniper Street.
