A Celebration Of Volunteers.
We LOVE our volunteers, and they love to eat. Now, that sounds like a good reason for a party! We served delicious bar-b-que and sweet treats to a packed house at our offices on November 16th for our annual Volunteer Appreciation BBQ Dinner. So far, in 2023 alone, Meals From The Heart packed 1.55 million meals over 50 events. These incredible milestones would be impossible without our dedicated and passionate team of volunteers.
While this is the season for giving thanks, we are grateful for the Meals From The Heart volunteers all year long. So far this year, our team has logged over 2,000 hours of loading and unloading trucks, setting up and cleaning up events, coaching meal-packers, and, importantly, doing it all with a big, enthusiastic smile!
A big shout out to the area businesses providing the food for our appreciation event – Hagberg’s Country Market, Swanson Meats Inc., and Joseph’s Restaurant and Bar. And special thanks to John Weyrauch for smoking the pork!
