With food poverty, loneliness and community division on the increase, we aim to promote Christian values through serving others.

“Be quick to give a meal to the hungry… be generous with the different things God gave you… That way, God’s bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus” 1 Peter 4:9-11

Emergency Care Bags

We are preparing free ‘Emergency Care Bags’ for distribution to anyone in Brentwood and the surrounding areas. These will include groceries such as pasta, chopped tomatoes, soup, soap, biscuits, toilet roll, tinned pulses and tuna.

If you are aware of someone who is self-isolating and running low on essentials, someone living on their own who may not have the support they need to get supplies, or even if you find yourself self-isolating and unable to get hold of essentials like food and toiletries, we are here for you!

Manna Meals is a Christian charity that exists to support anyone in need through food, friendliness and love for our neighbours. We are here to support any organisation or individual in any way we can.

Our cooks prepare meals such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne, sausage casserole and roast chicken with all the trimmings; puddings include sponge and custard, pineapple upside-down cake and peach cobbler. Our current meal location is in the Church Hall near McDonald’s at 24 Briar Road, Harold Hill, Romford, RM3 8AH.

Practical Advice

We can signpost people to get the support they need from local community resources and partner organisations.


Over time, we have been able to build relationships with guests that have allowed us to supply a wider form of Christian care outside of our meal times.
