Not your typical meal-packing experience.
Meals From The Heart meal-packing events are different than the type of meal-packing events you may be familiar with. Rather than having scheduled events that individuals can sign up to participate in at designated locations, Meals From The Heart organizes and facilitates custom meal-packing events for groups at our place or at your business or organization location. And since this type of event is our sweet spot, we’re really good at it.
Scalable and flexible.
We can create meal-packing events for groups as small as seven participants at our facility in Oak Park Heights. But we really like to take the show on the road. Hosted events at your location can accommodate hundreds of participants with multiple packing stations. We can facilitate several packing sessions per day or over several days.
We manage costs closely.
While we do need to cover the cost of meals and expenses, we work with our suppliers to provide the best ingredients available for the lowest cost possible. Once the number of participants and location is picked, we’ll work with you to determine the total cost of your event. All expenses are identified upfront, so there are no surprises.
Impact is significant and immediate.
We are proud of the enthusiasm, fun, and positive energy our meal-packing events create. But we never lose sight of our purpose of helping families and individuals put healthy and good-tasting food on their tables. Nearly all the meals packed at our events go to local food shelves in the communities where they are packed within a day or two.
Easy as 1-2-3!
We don’t just say we make it easy to make a difference, we live it! But don’t take our word for it. Got an idea for an event? Drop us a line or give us a call and see how easy it is to make a real impact in your community.
- 1. Pick a date.
Choose a day or set of days that will get the most people involved.
- 2. Choose a location.
Choose a location with a little elbow room and enough space to set up the packing stations with access for delivering meal ingredients and supplies. Corporate event centers and school gyms work great!
- 3. Set up your packing teams.
We can accommodate several teams in one day or over a series of days. Participant packing teams are either 7-10 people or 15-20 people depending on the set up.
- Go! Show up and have fun!
