The Philadelphia nonprofit organization “Manna” celebrated a major milestone on June 17 by delivering its 10 millionth meal. Founded in 1990, Manna originally delivered nutritious meals to the area’s HIV/AIDS population, but expanded its services to include those with other significant illnesses. Executive Director Sue Daugherty told KYW Newsradio, “It’s not only just a celebration of the 10 million meals, it’s really the over 17,000 lives we’ve impacted.”
