In the 2022-2023 school year, Emmanuel's partnership with Every Meal distributed 16,000 weekend meals to families that might not otherwise be able to provide adequate nutrition on the weekend. But what is Every Meal and how does this partnership work? Click on the questions below to find out more.
We distribute meals on the last day of the school week, every week, from October to the end of the year. The most important thing to make this successful is YOU. Sign up to help distribute by clicking here.
Fighting food insecurity isn't cheap. In the 2022-23 school year, we distributed 16,000 meals to families in our community. The cost to feed one child in our community is $368 per year. That's just in Mora.
Every Meal is currently serving 450 schools in Minnesota (that's 12,000 kids), and 130 schools are on a waitlist. The needs are great, but together we can help fight this.
You can donate directly to Every Meal. Or, better yet, we are currently working on having a personalize Emmanuel donation site. So, hang tight until then.
