About Our Food

Since our start, Meals from the Heartland has packaged and distributed over 38 million meals. We have heard first-hand from people who would not have eaten every day if not for the meals our volunteers provided. Together, we are making a difference!

About Our Food:

Meals from the Heartland food packages are nutritionally balanced meals – containing soy protein, vitamins and minerals. The meals were formulated to be accepted by many cultures around the world along with local distribution. Meals are prepared by cooking in boiling water as instructed on each package. The macaroni and cheese dinner will also need butter (margarine) and milk in the preparation.
