TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - In life, you never know what’s going to happen next. Some people are just simply in need. One local non-profit organization is fighting to help people who are in hunger. They’re called Manna from Seven. It’s made up of seven people who started at Saint Benedict’s Soup Kitchen. They later saw a deeper need.  Their goal is to help people stay fed during the weekends while the soup kitchens are closed. 

“It’s a wonderful feeling to feel like you’re making a difference,” said Susan Seitz. She’s the founder of the organization. She told News 10 that this was something she sees having a major impact on people.

“This is a friend that’s is coming to me and we’re filling a need,” she said. The group meets every Friday from 12pm-1pm at the bus stop downtown Terre Haute. It’s off of 8th and Cherry Streets. They help roughly 50 to 80 people every Friday. 

“It’s great to see my mother do this she’s an awesome role model,” said Nathan Seitz, Susan’s son. He comes as often as he can to help out the group. He says watching his mother be a part of something positive in the city sets an example for many to follow.

“I get to see firsthand the effect we’re having on these people,” said Seitz. If you want to donate or volunteer you can message them on their FaceBook page at Manna from Seven or contact them at 812-243-4241.
