About Us

Our Start

Manna House is a community outreach organization created in 1992 as a result of a student-led Problem Solvers project from Midlothian ISD to serve the needs of Midlothian residents. During that time, local churches collaborated to support the ministry and the current Manna House was born.

Our Mission

Manna House exists to meet the immediate needs of those in crisis in our community.

Our Vision

Manna House exists to give families a helping hand, empowering them to rise above the immediate crisis with a sense of dignity. Manna House is dedicated to serving the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of people in crisis. Manna strives to bring hope, encouragement and stability as we build a stronger, healthier community.

Who We Serve

Manna House Midlothian food pantry services residents in the 76065 zip code and/or Midlothian ISD. We partner with many other outreach services to ensure we are serving everyone in need in our community.

Our Italy, Texas food pantry serves those in and around the Italy area and provides only food support at this time.

“From generous donors to loving volunteers to the families receiving support. Neighbor helping neighbor is community. Manna House reveals the heart of our Midlothian citizens.” – Midlothian Mayor Justin Coffman
