Awhile back someone accidentally forgot their very special shopping list at Mana, and we were lucky enough to find it! It was too good to throw away, but without much to say about it, until now, we've kept it to ourselves.
However, in the name of light Holiday cheer, and the great reminder to all take ourselves a little less seriously, here it is...
This just might be the best gift you give during this holiday season, and Mana Foods is wholeheartedly ready and hoping to donate as much as possible to sweet little Trucker and his family!
The donations gathered through our Bag Credit Program, during the month of December, are all going to the Dukes family to help little Trucker win this battle!
The Mana Foods employment application includes a section that asks applicants to describe why they would like to work at Mana Foods, and over the years we've compiled quite the list of special and particularly honest reasons why people are seeking employment at Mana. These are all true, and all direct from Mana's Archives. Here's the first installment of this blog series. Enjoy!
“At the end of the day you need to ask yourself where is your life going? What do you want, and what do you need to make that happen?” -Ed Thielk
Mana Foods opened in 1983 and “back then it was this half-ass, half-renovated building that I rented for $160 per month.” -Thielk
Located in the same place Mana Foods is today, the initial space measured a mere 400-sq-ft, boasted a worn out cement floor, and an awkward accordion door. It lacked basic organization and aesthetic appeal, and seemed to have all odds against its survival. But, as irony would have it, this was the start of something very big.
