Summer of Service to Seniors Minneapolis

AARP Foundation and Feeding Children Everywhere partnered together to package 500,000 healthy meals for senior adults and others in need in the local community. There will be great music, good fun and a volunteer experience like no other!

More than a thousand Minnesotans gathered in a St. Paul gymnasium this August to pack more than a half-million meals for the state’s needier seniors as part of a nationwide food-packing drive.

Carol Hirsch of White Bear Lake was one of the volunteers who helped pack 500,256 meals at the University of St. Thomas and said the event sponsored by the American Association of Retired People was well-organized — and a blast. “I’d do it again in a minute,” she said.  The AARP Foundation is visiting cities across the nation and holding meal packing events such as this. The foundation’s last stop was Denver where they packed 501,696 meals.
