Open Your Heart provided funding to Community Emergency Assistance Programs (CEAP) to help them continue serving their neighbors by moving their food market to a curbside model with prepackaged boxes of food to limit exposure.
CEAP was founded in 1970 as a food shelf responding to the growing need for human services in Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park. CEAP mobilizes resources, shares abundance and nourishes neighbors to create and celebrate a healthier, stronger and connected community. In the Fiscal Year of 2018-2019, CEAP provided 1.36 million pounds of food to 65,343 individuals and more than 19,000 families received food assistance. Thank you Community Emergency Assistance Program for all that you do for individuals and families who are facing food insecurity in Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center!
