Open Your Heart provided Loaves & Fishes with funding toward a walkie pallet truck with scale for ease of maneuverability and greater control of food pallet movement at Loaves and Fishes’ warehouse, along with a more efficient process for weighing food and recording poundage. Loaves & Fishes is a nonprofit organization serving free, healthy meals to Minnesotans where the need is greatest. They are guided by their vision that all people – regardless of socioeconomic, cultural, religious, or ethnic background – deserve to meet their basic needs for food, dignity, and respect. Their experience with serving hungry Minnesotans began 39 years ago. In 1982 they opened two dining sites: one in Minneapolis and one in St. Paul. Today, they serve over 4 million meals a year through more than 30 community meal sites, street outreach, and over 40 partnering nonprofits in the community.”We are incredibly grateful for funding from OYH to purchase a new pallet jack for our street outreach program.
We expect this pallet jack will help us to bring about 2.4 million meals to those experiencing homelessness by the end of 2021.” – Loaves & Fishes
Thank you Loaves & Fishes for everything you do!
