What is Manna Inc?
* As “borrowed” from the Manna Inc website
Manna is a volunteer operated charity that helps to feed, clothe and support West Australians in need.
From what began as the simple act of feeding a few homeless people in a park, Manna has grown to become one of the largest providers of meals for disadvantaged people here in Perth.
Along the way we have seen other needs that we knew had to be addressed and, so, began our School Breakfast Program, Winter School Uniform program, the School Cooking Facility, Special functions for Seniors, as well as thousands of food parcels delivered each year.
The more contact we have with the community, the more we see that there is a greater need for the services we can offer.
What is Street Talk?
Street Talk is a series of blogs that I write with or about the homeless and needy people that Manna Inc helps to feed.
Street Talk is intended to be a five question chat with people on a semi-regular basis.
I would like to be able to tell you that, “Every Tuesday or Thursday morning, you will find a new Street Talk yarn on the blog”, but, unfortunately, life doesn’t work like that.
Some of the people we help have mental health issues, while others would prefer not to chat. Both are fine, but that means I will introduce you to these people when they feel comfortable in meeting you.
Thanks for reading!
