Hunger is a serious issue throughout the world, but it may surprise you that hunger impacts thousands of families right here in the U.S. – many in your own community. In fact, food insecurity exists in every county in America and nearly 6 million households rely on local food pantries each year*.
We hope you’ll join us for our “Feed The Need” luncheon and a conversation that can change lives. Hear how Meals From The Heart works with local businesses, faith groups, and civic organizations to help ease hunger and food insecurity right here at home in Minnesota and communities across the United States.
This free event is made possible by Meals From The Heart partners and sponsors. Participants will be invited to make a charitable gift to Meals From The Heart (no minimum or maximum contribution).
Spots are limited. If you are interested in attending or have questions, please contact Todd King using the form below.
“Around one in five Minnesota families has to make a choice at some point during the month [between a meal and going to the dentist], and that’s criminal. Those of us who are lucky enough to have, I feel, have an obligation to try to fix this problem.” – Jason DeRusha
Jason DeRusha filed his first report for WCCO-TV on April Fool’s Day in 2003. Since then, he’s earned nine Emmy Awards, his food coverage was a finalist for Outstanding TV Segment in the prestigious national James Beard Awards, the Jaycees named him one of the Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans, and the city of Minneapolis proclaimed Sept. 21 “Jason DeRusha Day.” No fooling.
Today, Jason co-anchors WCCO This Morning weekdays from 4:30 a.m. until 7:00 a.m., WCCO Mid-Morning from 9 to 10 a.m., and WCCO 4 News At Noon. He is also the station’s food reporter, producing “DeRusha Eats”.
