Meals From The Heart brings people together for meal-packing events that provide flavorful, nutritious meals to local food shelves. As the MFTH team likes to say: “We make it easy to make a difference”. BizRecycling enters in the picture with a similar mantra, helping businesses start or improve recycling programs to make a difference by reducing or diverting trash to the landfill.
Last month we packed our first event with Anytime Fitness and Self Esteem Brands, and it was a blast – talk about a workout! Over 350 employees and friends teamed up in one of our competitive “throwdown” events to pack nearly 80,000 meals in only three hours.
Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® (SPAAR) held a kick-off event earlier this month to support the Second Annual Side-By-Side community meal-packing event where more than 1,000 people from local congregations will come together to pack 250,000 meals to stock local food shelves. The community meal-packing event will be held on September 15-16 at the Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church at 1669 Arcade Street in St. Paul.
