Manna is looking for volunteers from our group to fill 2 hour spots to work a booth throughout the day for Blue Ridge Pride. Please click on the link below to sign up. Message from Alyssa:
You may already be aware, but MANNA FoodBank will be setting up an informational booth and marching in the Blue Ridge Pride Festival on September 24th and are looking for volunteers to represent MANNA and our LGBTQ+ community. We’ve missed having the AVL Lesbian Social Club at the food bank and would love to re-engage your group of women in the work we are doing to help support our neighbors in need. I was hoping that you could share the link below with your group members, should they be interested in getting involved.
Did you know:
**LGBTQ+ adults living in the US are nearly twice as likely to be experiencing food insecurity than non-LGBTQ+ adults, and transgender folks are three times as likely.** Our involvement in Pride 2022 is an expression of our commitment to the inclusion of our LGBTQ+ community at our partner agencies and in our working environment.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you in advance for your time!
All the best,
**Alyssa Shuman (she/her)**
