Who doesn’t like a good story, especially when it’s told by one of the most incredible storytellers of our time? We hope you’ll join us for lunch featuring Boyd Huppert of KARE TV. We also hope you’ll help share our story and spread the word about Meals From The Heart, as hunger continues to be a serious problem right in our own communities.

This year, Meals From The Heart is on target to pack an astonishing 1 million meals through events with community groups, churches, and our amazing corporate partners. Our hope today, through your generous support, is to stock local food shelves with an additional 100,000 meals.

This free event is made possible by Meals From The Heart partners and sponsors. Participants will be invited to make a charitable gift to Meals From The Heart (no minimum or maximum contribution).
