Open Your Heart Summer Challenge

Open Your Heart Summer Challenge

The OYH Summer Challenge aims to boost food shelves in Minnesota when they need it most. When school is out, families that rely on free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs have more meals to provide for, and food shelf donations are traditionally highest around the holidays.

The Summer Challenge is carried out in partnership with Hunger Solutions of Minnesota, who administers the grant. Applications are sent to food shelves mid-May and the deadline for their return is mid-June. Please contact Abbie Tish with Hunger Solutions at [email protected]  or 651-789-9848 if you have any questions.

In 2018, 130 food shelves completed the July fundraising challenge and received funds through the grant. Those grantees were able to leverage this challenge to raise $1,447,346.62 and received their portion of the $90,000 Open Your Heart challenge grant in addition.

Many thanks to Hunger Solutions for their partnership in this campaign and to all who participate and donate.
