From 2nd July we began offering takeaway meals. We are now providing 130 meals per day (7 days a week). These are takeaway meals with no clients coming into the centre itself. As our meals are takeaway only for the time being we have reduced the number of items on our Harvest Festival list. We do not need some of old familiar items such as tea, coffee and cereals for example.
That said, Harvest Festival donations are still of critical importance to us. They provide us with approx. 70% of our foodstuffs for the year. The food that we receive will be stored and used throughout the year.
Please click here for a list of our most needed items. Please copy and display as required. If you could arrange delivery of your Harvest gifts that would be ideal. Our delivery address is: 12 Melior Street, SE1 3QP. If it is not possible to deliver we will be happy to collect.
To arrange a collection please ring me on 020 7357 9363 and choose option 3 (Monday – Friday, 9.00am – 4.00pm) or email email@example.com
If you would like someone to speak to your congregation about the work of the Manna Centre please phone Bandi (the Manna Centre Director) on 020 7403 0441 and choose option 4.
Hoping you can support us 🙂

These are the services we are offering at present:
A housing & welfare telephone helpline (020 7403 1931 Option 1) began on Wednesday 1st April and operates from Monday to Friday, 10am to 1pm.
In addition to the helpline from Tuesday 16th June we began offering appointments to see an advice worker in the centre (these appointments are made via the number given above). Two weekly reports (one for the telephone advice service & one for the advice received at the centre) giving a brief synopsis of what we achieved and the issues that arose can be found HERE.
From 2nd July we are providing takeaway meals from the centre between 10am to 1pm, 7 days a week.
[From 14th April to 30th June we provided a hot dinner cooked at the Manna Centre and delivered by the L B of Southwark to:
- those moved off the street and placed into temporary accommodation as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic
- those in need of a hot meal
- The number of meals made can be found HERE]
Mailing Address: Those clients who have been given permission to use our address as a mailing address, can pick up their mail any weekday between 9am & 4pm . Please note – ID must be shown before any mail is given out.
Twice a year we carry out a survey to see:
- how many people have used our services that particular day
- what their accommodation status is
- how many have an income
The results of the last survey we carried out on Friday 31st January 2020 can be found HERE
