Check out this note from Commander Tim Harris of Washington County Sheriff’s Office. It really illustrates the incredible impact that donations, volunteers, and our new Food Box Program are making in the community.
Launched late last year to help families who continue to struggle with food insecurity, our Meals From The Heart Food Box Program is doing more than simply bridging food budget gaps. It’s also creating bridges in the community and helping people connect in new ways – in spite of ongoing pandemic restrictions.
Excellence In Giving has named Meals From The Heart as a CERTIFIED TRANSPARENT organization.
Excellence in Giving is a full-service philanthropic advisory firm designed to increase the joy of the high-capacity donor through a personalized process of discovery, evaluation, participation, and celebration.
We had a great night to kick off our FOOD BOX program on Friday, December 18th. We spent three hours at the Stop -N- Shop on Lake Street in Minneapolis and distributed 45 boxes! Each box contained over $50 worth of quality shelf-stable food items that can be used to create several, healthy, and flavorful meals.
The Meals From The Heart warehouse is stocked to the ceiling and the boxes are getting filled for our neighbors in Minneapolis. Thanks to the great crew of helpers who shared their time, smiles, and packing prowess. Shown in the picture are Scot Ide, Todd Mulvehill, Chris Ide, and Brian Mulvehill. We REALLY appreciate their hard work and especially their ability and willingness to haul heavy boxes!
We are so happy to be packing meals again. And by the results of our Stillwater Meal-Packing Challenge earlier this fall, so are the fantastic meal-packing teams that made it happen.
