Last month, Meals From The Heart made the trip out east to Long Island Lutheran High School (LuHi) for their 7th annual meal-packing event. And boy, was the trip worth it! In just three days, from April 9-11, over 1,200 students, staff, friends, and volunteers packed 316,060 meals for neighborhood food shelves.
Last summer, we helped facilitate our first meal packing event at one of Medtronic’s offices in the Netherlands. This European event was our first outside of the U.S. and it went very well! Thank you to the nice folks at Medtronic for sponsoring it and volunteering at the event, we were able to pack thousands of meals for local food shelves in the Netherlands area.
There are a lot of great things that go on during a meal-packing event with Meals From The Heart, and there are plenty of great things that go on after, too. During the excitement of a meal-packing event, the prospect of thousands of meals being delivered to local food shelves is a great feeling to have. But after an event, people are changed in so many great ways.
