MANNA MARKET

Manna Market Story

Substance Church has partnered with Manna Market, Anoka County, Second Harvest and local grocers [such as Target and CUB Foods] to provide food to those in need. What a beautiful opportunity this is to meet a basic need in the community and to show others the love of Jesus!

How is it done?

5 days every week, food is collected from local grocers; then at Substance's Northtown Campus, volunteers sort the food, box it back up, and load it in people's vehicles. We also put a small flyer in every box that has Substance service information and encouraging Bible verses too! As of 6/12, we are now able to distribute at our Downtown Campus! See below on volunteer opportunities at both campuses:)

What is Manna Market?

Manna Market is led by a couple who attend Substance Church. They have a heart to be good stewards of the abundance with which God blesses this country. They put in countless hours because they want to serve God and they hope to create a hunger in others to want to know Jesus more!
