25,000 Meals to Kids in Need
We are truly amazed by all the support for our Click for L.U.N.C.H campaign. Our initial goal was to provide 15,000 meals to Second Harvest Heartland’s Summer Food Service Program, but due to overwhelming clicks and support, we upped our goal to 25,000 meals and crushed it! That’s over 20,000 more meals than last year! From all of us here at IN to all of you who participated, our warmest thanks for making this year’s Click for L.U.N.C.H. campaign the best yet.
“We are beyond thrilled about the support for our Click for L.U.N.C.H. campaign. It’s such an easy way for people to give back, and I think that this incredibly accessible platform, along with some exciting coverage on local news, helped boost participation this year,” says Anita Nelson, president of IN Food Marketing & Design. To participate in Click for L.U.N.C.H., all you had to do was visit our campaign’s landing page. In turn, we provided 3 meals per click on the page.
Did you know?
During the school year, more than 40% of K-12 kids in Minnesota are eligible for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs. However, when the school year ends for the summer, these children may not have access to the nutritious meals they need. The Summer Food Service Program provides free meals to children 18 and under to fill this gap.
Here at IN, we’re passionate about food and are glad to help ensure fewer children in our community live at risk of hunger this summer. Our partnership with Second Harvest Heartland has been an incredible experience. You can find information about donating to or volunteering with this great organization at www.2harvest.org.
