MANNA got word last week that an additional section of the apple orchard in Hendersonville will be donated to the FoodBank. This is wonderful news for the FoodBank and the people we serve. Now it is time to mobilize! The additional orchard requires a great deal of volunteers to assist in the effort to pick apples. We are extending our apple picking season through the end of October. We will be picking each Friday morning from 9am-12pm, and each Saturday with two shifts from 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. Our apple picking season will end on Saturday October 26th.
If you are unable to make it to the orchard on a Friday morning or Saturday, we could utilize your assistance at the warehouse bagging the apples. We will be bagging apples at our warehouse Monday-Saturday during each of our volunteer shifts throughout October.
Please schedule yourself, friends and family, or a group to pick Apples with MANNA! If you are interested in this fun opportunity, please email or call our Volunteer Manager, Maxwell Gruber (firstname.lastname@example.org – 828-299-3663 ext 245), and he will put you on our schedule! Additional information and directions will be provided after you sign up to volunteer.
Thank you for your continued support of MANNA. Together we can solve hunger!
