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.
We are so grateful for the continued support we receive from our friends and neighbors to support our mission of providing flavorful, fortified meals to local food shelves and families in need.
Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® (SPAAR) presented a check for $50,000 to Meals from the Heart – WOW! This fantastic donation, our largest single donation ever –will help fund our Second Annual Side-By-Side community meal-packing event that will take place in September.
Just how far will Meals From The Heart go to help local, food insecure families? How about 4,173 miles! That’s how far it is from the Minneapolis airport to the Netherlands. And for the third year in a row, Meals From The Heart teamed up with Medtronic in the Netherlands to help support local food shelves.
