The Manna charity is supported by over 200 regular volunteers.   These volunteers assist Manna to deliver its services in an organised, professional and timely manner.  The volunteers could be in the Manna kitchen, assist at our breakfast programs, delivering meals to the homeless in the park or assisting us in many other operational areas (ie: Deliveries and/or pick-ups, graphic design, IT etc).

Manna only has a few paid employees and these include the Chief Executive Officer (full-time), Kitchen Coordinator (full-time), Kitchen Assistant and Breakfast Program Coordinator (full-time), Bookkeeper (part-time) and the Volunteer Coordinator (part-time).

Manna’s Fleet – Manna currently has four vehicles to run these vital services.

With very few paid employees Manna has very low overhead and administration costs.  This ensures that funds go straight to providing food and essential services to the community.
