The Manna Food Bank is a volunteer-run charitable organization funded primarily by our local community.

Regular Food Drives and Fundraisers

Manna organizers and many Bracebridge businesses, schools and community groups hold regular food drives and fundraisers. They include the Spring Envelope Campaign every February, the Fall Food Drive organized by the Muskoka Oldtimers Hockey Club, and food drives organized by Gagnon’s Your Independent Grocer.

You Can Donate at Any Time- but please ONLY food or cash.

We gratefully accept donations of cash and non-expired, unopened food at any time. Non-food items can be directed to other distribution services such as the Salvation Army Church, or ‘The Nest’ at 10 Armstrong Street, Bracebridge for gently-used clothing for children from birth to 12-years old, toys, books, infant and baby gear.


Dropboxes for non-expired, non-perishable items are located at Gagnon’s Your Independent Grocer, Food Basics, and many of the local churches. Or you can drop off your food donation in person at the food bank, located at 345 Ecclestone Drive, on the north side of Aspire Self-Storage Unit 45, (the old Dura Building) Bracebridge.  Manna is open Tuesdays and Fridays, 1 to 4 p.m.
