Project Mana: Volunteers sought for annual Stone Soup program

TAHOE/TRUCKEE - Join Project MANA once again for this season's Stone Soup. Stone Soup is a weekly soup night in Truckee where everyone is invited to celebrate food, live music and community.

Soup is prepared and served each Sunday evening from Jan. 6 to March 10 from 5-7 p.m. at the Community Arts Center at 10046 Church Street in downtown Truckee. Bring your own bowl and spoon and come enjoy delicious soup and a good time! Donations are requested but not required.

This year, Project MANA is spearheading efforts to find different groups of volunteers from throughout the community to get involved in Stone Soup. If you or your organization is interested in preparing soup or volunteering on Sundays, contact Project MANA at 775-298-0008.

Talk Turkey a success

On Saturday, Nov. 17, Project MANA held another successful Let's Talk Turkey Food Distribution. Thanks to more than 25 local businesses, social service agencies, schools and churches throughout North Lake Tahoe and Truckee, Project MANA reached nearly 700 families in need and provided each of them with a turkey and fixings for a wholesome holiday meal.

Project MANA would like to thank each and every member of the community who helped make this year's Let's Talk Turkey Food Distribution possible.

More than 60 volunteers donated their time and hard work to make this event a success. Without the generous donations of turkeys, canned foods and money that Project MANA received from so many local businesses and individuals, it would not have been possible to provide so many holiday meals to so many people.

About Project MANA

Project MANA (Making Adequate Nutrition Accessible) is a non-profit hunger relief organization that has been serving North Lake Tahoe and Truckee since 1991. Project MANA's mission is to reduce the incidence of hunger and its detrimental effects upon individuals, families, the local community and the region.

The agency strives to accomplish this by providing immediate food relief to those experiencing hunger or who are at high risk of hunger, and by working to alleviate the root causes of hunger through programs such as child and adult nutrition education, community gardens, and through collaborations with local agencies that provide access to other important resources.
