Back in June, the Hungry Heart Cafe launched a new program called Meals Squared. When customers come to the Hungry Heart for a delicious meal, they are able to add $2 (or more) to their bill. This money goes directly toward the production of a well-balanced, delicious meal for a participant. Hunger is often a problem in the population we serve, and our goal is to eliminate it. The Hungry Heart Cafe offers food services training to student participants who are helping make the meals while learning employment and culinary skills. You have responded! So many people in our community have stepped up by adding $2 (and more!) to their bill. This partnership between the Hungry Heart staff, our student participants who work in the cafe, and YOU, our customers is making a difference. The first 250 meals have been distributed to participants: chicken pot pies and lasagna. Each program at Stella’s Circle is given meals to distribute to their participants who might otherwise not eat a healthy meal. Everyone benefits.
The more we spread the word about Meals Squared, the more people we can help feed. All while training our participants in the food services industry so they can be more confident and self-reliant. So many wonderful repercussions all wrapped in one program – Meals Squared.
