What The Heck Is A Meal-Pack Throwdown?

When it comes to implementing meal-packing events, Meals From The Heart is a well-oiled machine. From set-up to clean-up, our dedicated team of volunteers transform spaces into meal-packing factories – organizing the packers, stocking ingredients, keeping the lines moving, and ultimately delivering boxes of packed meals to local food shelves.

At Meals From The Heart, we also are always looking for fun, new ways to combat the severe issue of hunger in our communities. So, when we started organizing meal-packing events at area businesses and corporations, we quickly saw an opportunity to up our game. That’s when we designed a meal-packing event specifically for employee groups – ideal for team building, boosting morale, and strengthening relationships.


5,000 Meals Delivered To Help Our Neighbors In St. Paul’s Midway Area!

With the help of much-needed and appreciated donations, Meals From The Heart teamed up with Open Hands Midway, Inc. to provide 5,000 meals for St. Paul Midway residents. Meals From The Heart provides millions of meals each year to local food shelves through meal-packing events. However, since normal meal-packing events are on hold during the health crisis, we are seeking donations and are working with a small group of staff and volunteers to pack and deliver meals safely. We hope to secure the donations to provide 300,000 meals to help keep local food shelves and organizations like Open Hands Midway, Inc. stocked with healthy, good-tasting meals. Thanks to our generous donors for helping us help our neighbors get through these tough times.


Heritage Exteriors and Restoration Inc. Teams Up With Meals From The Heart To Provide Nearly 5,000 Meals To Central Minnesota Families.

Demand at local food shelves is skyrocketing during the current health crisis. A local company, Heritage Exteriors & Restoration, that provides Minnesota with roofing, siding, and gutter solutions, is now expanding its services to helping keep local food shelves stocked in Central Minnesota. Based in Spicer, Minnesota, owners Jason Quade and Keith Palmquist, like the rest of the world, have never experienced anything like what we’re all going through now. 


Insta-Delicious! How To Prepare Our Veggies and Rice In An Instant Pot!

One of the most significant things that set Meals From The Heart apart from other meal-packing organizations is, of course, our food. Since our meals go directly to local food shelves, then to dining tables throughout our community, we’ve spent considerable time, with the help of a chef, developing recipes that taste great. We know we succeeded when both our food shelf partners and their customers frequently request more of our meals!
