For over a decade, Open Your Heart has provided Hunger Solutions Minnesota with the opportunity to administer the highly impactful Summer Challenge Grant to support food shelves across the state. This funding helps raise awareness of hunger and helps food shelves raise additional funding during slower summer months to continue meeting the needs of their local communities. Last July, food shelves leveraged this opportunity with Open Your Heart and raised over 2.4 million dollars in local funding. At a time when food shelves faced tremendous strain due to Covid-19 and the increased need for their resources, funds through Open Your Heart impacted food shelves tremendously.
