Good Deeds Week Manna Food Drive

Saturday, April 10, 2021 28 Nisan 5781

All Day for 8 DaysBJC -Parking Lot Greentree Rd. Entrance

BJC is joining with the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Sara & Samuel J. Lessans Good Deeds Week.* Over 60 partners and thousands of participants across DC, MD, and Northern VA will work to address the year-round problem of food insecurity. Join us as we fill the shelves of local food pantries, feed those who are hungry, and make a difference all week long. For our project, BJC will once again collect food for Manna. 

From Saturday, April 10 – Sunday, April 18, Manna will have three blue bins on the church-side parking lot in the yellow area. The bins are unattended, and you can drop off food at any time. Here’s a quick list of what foods Manna needs most:

Grains: instant oatmeal packets, original flavor; brown rice; whole grain pasta

Protein:  tuna, salmon, or chicken in water; dry or canned beans (low sodium), natural nut butters

Fruits & Vegetables: canned vegetables (low sodium), canned fruit (in juice), fruit cups

Other Healthy Items: shelf-stable, individual milk boxes; cooking oils and spices; instant formula & baby needs.

Please note: Manna cannot accept opened packages, nor food beyond its expiration date.
