Every Meal Childrens Backpack On A Table The journey of food
into kids' backpacks

Your gift to Every Meal will go right to work providing good food to Minnesota children.


Fighting Child Hunger

More than 300,000 children in Minnesota live with food insecurity.  We’re on a mission to change that. Every Meal fights child hunger by focusing on filling the food gaps children face on weekends, extended breaks, and summer when they’re not able to access school meal programs. When they don’t have consistent access to enough food, the risk of hunger is very real. Through our multiple food gap programs, we provide children and families experiencing food insecurity with access to good food.


Volunteer Hours

We offer many ways for you to volunteer your time to help fight child hunger.

Food Access Sites

Our meal bags are available at various sites, with schools being our key way of getting food to children. Your group can partner with a local school.
