If there is one thing we’ve learned from the countless meal-packing events and FOODBOX deliveries we’ve facilitated over the years is that no one can go it alone. And that goes double for us! Sure, as a small, nimble team, we wear many hats. But we could NEVER achieve success and help keep food on our neighbors’ tables without a vast support system.
Old National Bank in Minnesota wanted to celebrate its inaugural “Better Together Volunteer Days” with a huge meal-packing event. But with several locations around the state, it was virtually impossible to have one big, centralized event. So, we took the show on the road! Old National Bank’s “Better Together Volunteer Days” is an opportunity for bank employees to volunteer in the communities where they live and work.
Yes, we know that people often get a little overwhelmed by the prospect of hosting a Meals From The Heart meal-packing event. But without exception, they’re always a little surprised (sometimes ALOT surprised) at how seamless, easy, and FUN we make our meal-packing events. The truth is when we say, “We make it easy to make a difference,” we mean it!
If competitive meal-packing was an Olympic sport, you could safely assume that the folks at Medtronic would all earn the gold! In fact, you could also safely say that they essentially invented competitive meal packing – with help from Meals From The Heart, of course.
Wow! These campers were ALL energy! This was our fifth visit to Hidden Pines Ranch in Stillwater, MN, and we were welcomed with tons of enthusiasm and massive smiles. And boy, were they ready for action! In just two days of packing, these energetic campers packed over 30,000 meals for neighborhood food shelves in Minnesota. One thing we can say for sure is helping your neighbors is a camp skill these kids have surely mastered!
