Just how far will Meals From The Heart go to help local, food insecure families? How about 4,173 miles! That’s how far it is from the Minneapolis airport to the Netherlands. And for the third year in a row, Meals From The Heart teamed up with Medtronic in the Netherlands to help support local food shelves.
Meals From The Heart partners with Medtronic to bring the theme of “Global Reach/Local Impact” to life.
A key part of Medtronic’s mission focuses on community service and partnership. They put a priority on setting aside time for their associates to serve their local communities. And this month, the local communities they served happened to be in the Netherlands – specifically, Kerkrade, Heerlen, Eindhoven, and Maastricht.
Last summer, we helped facilitate our first meal packing event at one of Medtronic’s offices in the Netherlands. This European event was our first outside of the U.S. and it went very well! Thank you to the nice folks at Medtronic for sponsoring it and volunteering at the event, we were able to pack thousands of meals for local food shelves in the Netherlands area.
