We Serve the Hungry



I love volunteering at Meals from the Heartland and have been doing so for several years. Recently, I’ve started organizing team packaging events with my co-workers. It’s a great way to come together with my friends and co-workers, serve shoulder to shoulder, and be a part of packaging the actual meal that a hungry person somewhere around the world will soon be eating. And to know it might be their only meal that day is a humbling experience. I’m grateful that Meals from the Heartland is right here in my own backyard and a place where I can serve and be a part of the solution. I look forward to introducing more of my co-workers to Meals throughout 2018!

Sergio's community was hit hard by the recent earthquakes in Mexico, and many of his neighbors lost their homes. After receiving some of our meals, he was curious about where the food came from. He researched us and was touched as he read about Meals from the Heartland's mission and saw pictures of the many volunteers who made it possible. In his own words,

"We got some of your meals after the earthquake here in Mexico and I feel truly grateful for the help we received from you and the people that kept sending support after the disaster. I have no words to express how moved I am from your work...I looked for your organization to thank you and let you know we truly appreciate the effort of all volunteers."

Volunteering with Meals from the Heartland has been very rewarding for my wife and I in so many ways.  It feels great knowing that we are making a difference in people's lives with every meal we help package.  We’ve also met many new people and have made lots of new friends along the way.  The MFTH staff are friendly and make you feel right at home.

On Christmas we gave our grandchildren a choice to make on where they would (each) like to donate $20.00.  They have all participated in packaging meals for Meals from the Heartland.  Five of them chose to send their donations to you!

Love what you are doing!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
