Project MANA, (Making Adequate Nutrition Accessible), is the hunger relief organization serving the North and West Shores of Lake Tahoe and Truckee.
It covers three counties in Northern California and one county in Northern Nevada. Since its inception in July of 1991, Project MANA has responded to the emergency food need of the homeless, the elderly, the homebound, families in need, children and single parents.
The mission of Project MANA is to reduce the incidence of hunger and its detrimental effects upon individuals, families, the community and the region.

Project MANA’s nutrition education program provides our community members with tools to improve their health, wellness, and perspective through cooking demonstrations, food samples, and lessons on budgeting, smart shopping, food safety, and healthy eating.
