Corporate’s in the Manna Kitchen

Up to 12 people
1:00pm – 4:30pm
$1,100 donation – covers the cost of providing 220 meals to the homeless

Manna provides meals for the homeless and disadvantaged at an inner city park each afternoon.    Manna also provides other agencies with up to 400 meals a week.   During the afternoon the team will assist our kitchen coordinator preparing meals, soups and much more.   As the team work together conversations will take place that they wouldn’t normally have in the workplace.

Knowing the donation covers the costs of the daily meals gives the team a real sense of being responsible for the food provided that day.    It really is team building at its best as the team focuses on others.

Sponsor and Volunteer at one of 5 Special Senior Citizens Lunches

There are many seniors in our community who are lonely and rarely leave their homes.   Bev likes to spoil them during the year with themed lunches, which is a major outing for many.  The volunteers arrive early to set up the hall, begin food and drink preparation and anything else that needs to happen to make this a seamless event for up to 250 seniors.

Throughout the day the team is responsible for creating the meal, serving the meal and cleaning up after the lunch.  The seniors thoroughly enjoy the lunches, and the opportunity to talk to volunteers is priceless for everyone.  This is a great opportunity to promote the workplace culture in a hands-on way by assisting others.

WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAM

Prepared by the Corporate Team

Employees can arrange with their employer to donate to Manna through workplace giving programs.   When a portion of their pay is donated to a charity through regular payroll deductions, the employer can reduce their gross salary by the gift amount when calculating the pay as you go (PAYG) amount withheld. This gives them the benefit of reduced tax immediately.
