Safer Grocery Form System

Safer Grocery Form System

Manna clients use a grocery form to tell the food bank what foods they are requesting. Due to concerns about COVID-19, we came up with safer ways for clients to submit their grocery forms.

The Points System

Every family receives a number of points with which they select their groceries. The number of points you receive depends on the number of people in your family. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the point level has been increased by 10 per category. See updated chart below.
