We Sill Need Your Help During the COVID-19 Pandemic

We are providing meals to America’s starving children during this crisis, but we need your help to keep going. Local food pantries are turning to Meals from the Heartland for more help, and our supply of packaged meals is dwindling. We desperately need your donation to purchase meal ingredients. With your help, we can continue to provide meals to those in need – both locally and around the world.

3 Generations Find Joy in Serving @ Meals from the Heartland 12.23.21

Three Generations Find Joy in Serving

As the Christmas season drew closer, I began to wonder: how can three generations of our family (some from out-of-state) serve others so we look beyond ourselves? Meals from the Heartland came immediately to mind for the way it encompasses compassion, action and impact.

Once our reservation was made, I decided to keep the details a surprise. As our shift neared, intrigue and anticipation of family members escalated. It was so fun to see! The night of our shift, most of our family enjoyed the blessing of riding together. Others were simply given the address and asked to meet up by a certain time.

“Wow, what a great idea!” “What does this experience look like?” and “I didn’t even know this was here.” were among the sentiments shared upon discovering what our family time entailed.
