Our Story: Manna Food Center has been providing food assistance to residents of Montgomery County, MD for nearly 35 years. Through food distribution programs, nutrition education, and local advocacy Manna is creating a community where all people at all times have access to safe, sufficient, nutritious food in order to lead fulfilling lives and contribute to making Montgomery County a place where all live in dignity. Over the last 6 years, we’ve developed a robust nutrition education program in order to provide our participants with the tools to plan and prepare budget-friendly healthful meals. As part of our advocacy work, Manna developed Breaking Bread to foster conversations about the root causes of food insecurity, namely racial inequity, and come up with new solutions to this persistent issue. 

We are in need of a Program Coordinator who is interested and able to teach a wide variety of audiences in a unique mobile classroom. The Coordinator’s primary responsibility is scheduling and implementing cooking education at schools and other community locations at least two days per week. The Specialist will also lead a new community-based Breaking Bread project to encourage community members to get involved in generating solutions to the presence of food insecurity in the County.
