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!
Volunteers are the lifeblood of just about any worthwhile non-profit organization. And Meals From The Heart is no different. Well, we are sort of different because our volunteers happen to be the best volunteers ever! There are so many people who not only step up to the plate but do so time after time; it’s difficult to mention only a few. But these folks were lucky enough to find themselves in front of a camera, so we decided to feature them!
Thanks to the many organizations and faith communities who stepped up to help ease a dire situation half a world away with nearly a quarter million meals! While our focus at Meals From The Heart will always be serving our local communities and neighbors, we won’t hesitate to assist wherever the need may be – even if those neighbors are halfway across the world.
Local Stillwater area businesses gathered at our facility for the Third Annual “Let’s Give Hunger the Business” B2B Meal Packing Challenge event the first week of May this year. And it was AWESOME! In just two days, 29 different groups packed over 54,000 meals. And boy-oh-boy was it fun.
