Wow, where has the time gone? Five years ago today (February 14, 2014), we packed our first meal as Meals From The Heart and we’d like to offer a big high five to everyone who has helped along the way! It’s been a fantastic ride, packing millions of meals for our neighbors. Special thanks to our tireless team of volunteers and, especially, our clients who’ve really stepped up to help keep local food shelves stocked! Thank you all. Here’s looking forward to the next fantastic five!

Meals From The Heart brings people together for meal-packing events that provide flavorful, nutritious meals to local food shelves. As the MFTH team likes to say: “We make it easy to make a difference”. BizRecycling enters in the picture with a similar mantra, helping businesses start or improve recycling programs to make a difference by reducing or diverting trash to the landfill.
Last month we packed our first event with Anytime Fitness and Self Esteem Brands, and it was a blast – talk about a workout! Over 350 employees and friends teamed up in one of our competitive “throwdown” events to pack nearly 80,000 meals in only three hours.
Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® (SPAAR) held a kick-off event earlier this month to support the Second Annual Side-By-Side community meal-packing event where more than 1,000 people from local congregations will come together to pack 250,000 meals to stock local food shelves. The community meal-packing event will be held on September 15-16 at the Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church at 1669 Arcade Street in St. Paul.
We are so grateful for the continued support we receive from our friends and neighbors to support our mission of providing flavorful, fortified meals to local food shelves and families in need.
