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?

4 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! Then on Sundays, we distribute food 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!
