In only a few short years, Meals From The Heart has grown from a couple annual events managed from Tom’s kitchen table to an organization that is making a daily impact in the lives of families in need as well as those who serve.
Meals From The Heart = Momentum
Here are a few highlights and milestones that illustrate the growing impact of Meals From The Heart.
As an organization, we have packed nearly 10 million meals since 2008. The first 13 events were packed as a satellite of Kid’s Against Hunger or with Feed My Starving Children.
As Meals from the Heart, we’ve packed nearly 6 million meals since our first event on Valentine’s Day, 2014.
We have packed over 1 million meals with our corporate host partner, Medtronic, in three states and 2 countries. We expect that number to be exceeding on an annual basis beginning in 2017.
We have packed nearly 2 million meals with LuHi, Long Island Lutheran in New York.
We have packed nearly 750,000 meals with offenders in MN State prisons in our Serving Beyond the Bars initiative. We will be well over a million after 2017.
Our goal is to pack over 5 million meals in 2017 and 10 million in 2018.
