Helping Hands of Franklin County, VA

Welcome to Heavenly Manna, Inc. of Franklin County, Virginia

If you need food...
  • Food assistance is based on financial income guidelines established by the USDA, though those who are over-qualified and have a need for food will be assisted.
  • Families are limited to one box per month. The boxes we distribute are sized for families of 1-3, and 4-7, and additional food is provided to families of 7 or more. Only in special circumstances do we distribute more than one box per month to a family.
  • You must bring your own box.
  • If a month has five Mondays, we usually close one of those Mondays, and post the closing on doors and windows of our distribution center.
  • If there is bad weather, we close when the school system closes.

We will be closed the following Mondays:


  • Dec 25th - Christmas

Heavenly Manna, Inc, a Franklin County, VA Food Bank, opened its doors for operation in 1991 and continues to serve the community today. Three people, Joyce Sigmon, the present director, and Bobby and Emmaline Sigmon, past directors, saw the need in the community for food assistance. Since that time many churches and community organizations have joined forces through financial assistance, food drives, and volunteering to combat hunger in Franklin County.

Heavenly Manna is operated by volunteer staff only, there are no salaried positions, no rent to pay, and the food costs are minimal. Minimal expenses equate to more quality food for those in need. The volunteers at Heavenly Manna, are compassionate, dedicated, and rooted in Christian values filling each box full of food and love.

Our mission is to provide food assistance to any family in need.
