The Meals From The Heart FOOD BOX program helps families struggling with food insecurity stretch their food budget by offering pre-packed food boxes filled with a selection of familiar and quality grocery items at a substantial savings.
It’s what’s inside that counts. We proactively seek out very specific types of food. Each box contains a variety of shelf-stable food items that can be used to create several, healthy, and flavorful meals. Boxes will also include cooking tips, meal-planning tools, and even some recipes. It’s not just about getting food to families. It’s about getting GOOD food to families.

Meals From The Heart has built a reputation of bringing people together to help neighbors. Like our meal-packing events, our FOOD BOX program works best when we all work together. The program is designed for community and local business participation every step of the way – from securing funding, packing food, and packing and distributing boxes. Events can be designed specifically for employee groups, church groups, or community groups. And, they’re easy to host. From food to tools to processes to packaging to distribution, we handle it all.
Meals From The Heart intends to launch the FOOD BOX program in fall 2020. Our plan is to scale up from producing 300 boxes per month to 500 per month by the end of the year. In the first four months, the FOOD BOX program will provide 32,000 pounds of food (over 64,000 servings) and save families $64,000 that they can spend on other necessities.
