Marilyn Wise, executive director of the MannaFest Food Pantry explained the work of the organization to a visitor to the open house Thursday. MannaFest hosted the open house to celebrate its accomplishments and recognize those who make it all possible. This year marks the 20th year that the local food pantry has been in its present location at 803 W. Feagin in Livingston where an additional 1,200 square feet was added to the building last year. “A lot of donors helped us with that, and we wanted to recognize them, as well as our volunteers,” Wise said. A not-for-profit organization, MannaFest is a member of the Southeast Texas Food Bank. Through this relationship the pantry is linked to the USDA for supplemental food and to the Feeding America Program. The organization provides supplemental groceries to those in need in Polk Country from 9 a.m. to noon each Monday and Friday as well as 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. the first Saturday of the month.
