Open Your Heart provided funding to REACH for refrigeration to be able to provide more fresh produce and dairy products to individuals and families facing food insecurity in rural Minnesota.
REACH is a non-profit human service center serving children, individuals, and families residing in rural Clay, Becker, and Norman counties in Minnesota. REACH was established in 1991 as the result of a grassroots effort focused on addressing the pressing emotional and financial problems facing families in the area. Over the past 28 years, REACH has become ‘the service provider’ for rural communities in the area and continues to alter or expand its services based on the needs demonstrated by the people they serve. In 2018, they distributed 41,859 pounds of food and over 660 backpacks per month to area schools. Thank you REACH for all that you do!!
