A Celebration Of Volunteers.

We LOVE our volunteers, and they love to eat. Now, that sounds like a good reason for a party! We served delicious bar-b-que and sweet treats to a packed house at our offices on November 16th for our annual Volunteer Appreciation BBQ Dinner. So far, in 2023 alone, Meals From The Heart packed 1.55 million meals over 50 events. These incredible milestones would be impossible without our dedicated and passionate team of volunteers.

Helping Neighbors Is A Family Affair!

Meet Leo DeCorsey and his grandsons Jackson and Nicholas. After retiring in 2020 from Andersen Windows & Doors, Leo started volunteering at Meals From The Heart in 2021. Inspired by his grandfather, Nicholas decided to collect money for hungry kids and gave it to Leo to donate to Meals From The Heart. Not wanting to miss an opportunity to develop the next generation of volunteers, Tom invited Nicholas and his brother to see the whole operation firsthand. They were outfitted in the appropriate volunteer leader attire and joined their grandfather in packing food boxes for needy families.

Volunteers With Heart – Lotsa Heart!

There are so many people who not only step up to the plate but do so time after time; it’s difficult to mention only a few. But these folks were lucky enough to find themselves in front of a camera, so we decided to feature them!

Hugs, Handshakes, High Fives, And A True Sense Of Purpose!

At the heart of what makes Meals From The Heart a truly unique and incredible organization are the hearts that keep the good work flowing. And you’d be hard-pressed to find bigger hearts than the ones beating inside Wayne and Ken. Ken Hanson and Wayne Pepin have been volunteering with Meals From The Heart almost from day one. From coaching meal-packing teams and lugging 50-pound bags of rice to loading trucks and delivering bags of food throughout the community, their busy hands are matched only by their massive hearts and warm smiles.
