Sponsor A School

Your church, company, synagogue, mosque, club, etc. can sponsor a school right here in Minnesota.

Every Meal is an ever-growing network of weekend food programs operating in multiple schools. Each of our schools is sponsored by one or more groups in the community – this is the key component in each of our programs.

If your organization chooses to sponsor a school, you can expect to:

  • own the relationship with the school
  • donate towards the cost of the program
  • provide volunteers to distribute food directly to the children at school

Every Meal provides the operational expertise and logistical management for each program, freeing up your organization to do what you want to do – give food to kids and develop a relationship with a school.

Every Meal will work with you along the way, advising where you need us to. We’ll also source, manage, store, package, and deliver the food for your partner school’s program.

Basically, we make it easier for your organization to feed kids in the community by removing many of the logistical obstacles that may be stopping you from launching a weekend food program. This approach has already proven to bring many new partners into the fight against child hunger. We hope you consider sponsoring a school.

What Our Current Sponsors Think

When we became aware of the need that Every Meal was committed to fulfilling, we quickly made up our mind to help as best we could. Our team jumped at the opportunity to serve the community via our partnership with Every Meal.  Within a matter of hours, we filled our first four volunteer commitments.  Those that have participated already, are anxious to keep coming back.

When we heard about Every Meal, it made sense to us to participate in this collaborative effort, along with the school and another church, because we could accomplish so much more together than any of us could on our own.

The experience has been eye-opening for many volunteers - they didn't understand that a "wealthy" community such as ours would also be dealing with this type of issue.

Such a blessing to be able to help kids with a basic need of food.

Our volunteer work at the school definitely helps us better understand the needs of the community.

Our people are happy to give to Every Meal. It feels real and tangible and local.

You make it so easy! Thank you for handling the logistics of the program, it's so refreshing!

Our group is very willing to put in the time and are dedicated to the cause. The teachers are always so gracious and helpful when they see us.
