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.

We know we succeeded when both our food shelf partners and their customers frequently request more of our meals!
