Description:  Manna Ministries is a Christ-centered church that focusses on feeding the homeless population in Riverside, California.  It's many services revolve around its oldest mainstay, Thursday evenings at Fairmount Park, where local homeless neighbors receive hot fresh meals and spiritual nourishment through God's word.


Other peripheral activites include a weekly Bible study, food distribution to other ministries, pet food distribution,  supplies and clothing distribution, and interaction with various city agencies.


Purpose:  To treat and love the Riverside homeless as we would our neighbors and as we would ourselves.


 

Every Thursday at Fairmount Park, Riverside, CA, a tranquil clearing under the trees is transformed to a church in an effort to serve Him by ministering to the homeless.  Volunteers start preparing meals in the early morning for distribution that afternoon.

Also on site is music worship, hygiene kit handouts, pet food pickup, a book bank, and more.

you do."
