Meals for Minds Hits One Million Pounds!
The Meals for Minds program has hit a very significant milestone! This month, the 1 millionth pound of food will be distributed through the Meals for Minds program since it began in 2010!
Meals for Minds is a monthly, mobile grocery distribution program operating in nine high-need elementary schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Funded through a grant from Target, Meals for Minds helps to ensure that students have access to nutritious food at home so they can come to school ready to learn and succeed in the classroom.
Each month, students receive an average of 35 pounds of food--including fresh fruits and vegetables–that they may not receive otherwise. Volunteers are needed to assist with distributing food to families through this rapidly growing program.
