New Location Grand Opening Announced
August 7, 2014
After almost a year of “repurposing” the Lakewood Baptist Church, Manna’s Market will bemoving to its new location on August 14, 2014. The Market will be closed during its regular business hours on Monday, August 11 to prepare for the move. During the summer of 2013 the Lakewood Baptist Church donated its building at 8 acres at 7180 Velte Road (M-50), Lake Odessa, Michigan, to Manna’s Market. Manna’s Market graciously accepted the donation.
Manna’s Market is a food, clothing bank and baby pantry serving all of Barry County, Ionia County north to I-96 and Eaton County east to the Vermontville/Mulliken line. Recipients who qualify can come to The Market once a month for assistance.
Manna’s Market has no paid staff and operates solely by volunteer assistance. On July 27 the volunteers attended a building orientation and volunteer appreciation event at the new location. More than 60 volunteers were present. Cake and ice cream was served and each volunteer put their finger print on a picture of a tree to memorialize the event. The picture was provided by Heirlooms Gallery of Lake Odessa.
The grand opening to the public will be held on Wednesday, August 27 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and is open to the public. A pig roast, blessing of the building, ribbon cutting and tour of the facility is planned.
