A new milestone of meals!
As of this month, The Sheridan Story has officially distributed over 2 million meals to children throughout the Twin Cities metro area! Together, we have worked hard to get to this milestone, all out of passion for our mission: to make sure no child goes hungry.
Recently a local teacher shared a story of one child who has benefitted from just some of these 2 million meals:
I was concerned about one of my students, who had only a peanut butter sandwich in his lunch bag for several days in a row. This boy told me his mom’s car had broken down, their refrigerator wasn’t working, and they just didn’t have enough money to buy many groceries. We told Mom about The Sheridan Story, and explained that she could get free food on weekends.
Mom signed her kids up, started getting food on weekends, and was incredibly grateful for the help. About three months later, Mom called us to share she was doing better and no longer needed the food!
This boy and his mom are just one example of the impact your partnership has had on child hunger in our community, and it illustrates the beauty of The Sheridan Story Weekend Food Program! Our food is ready for kids the moment they need it – no long term commitments, no application process, and no paperwork with “income requirements” criteria that may have stopped this mom from being able to get the help she and her children needed.
Having distributed over 2,000,000 meals, we’re just getting started! Help us keep the momentum by making a gift today!
