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. Please contact them with any questions.

In 2016, 139 food shelves completed the July fundraising challenge and received funds through the grant. Those grantees were able to leverage this challenge to raise $1,203,179 and received their portion of the $150,000 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.

Find your local food shelf below and be sure to donate to them directly during the month of July so they can take advantage of our proportional match!
