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. During the summer months, food shelf donations are traditionally low. For the thousands of Minnesota families that rely on free breakfast and lunch programs during the school year, the summer makes it difficult for them to secure food. In partnership with Hunger Solutions, Open Your Heart’s Summer Challenge makes it possible for Minnesota food shelves to restock and distribute fresh and frozen foods during this difficult time of year.

To Apply

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.
