About

Each year, 100 million meals are missed in Minnesota. The MatterBox is a food program here in Minnesota that is addressing the core issue of poverty: access to healthy foods. In additional to offering an immediate solution to hunger, the MatterBox is also addressing the issues of diabetes and obesity through our dedication to healthy foods. Over the past year we have worked with local dietitians to craft a food box that is full of shelf stable, healthy foods that can be distributed through non-traditional partners such as doctors, law enforcement, and schools. One unique aspect for this program is the sustainable funding model. By asking our service groups to cover 75% of the cost of the each box, we are able to over our meals to our partners at a greatly reduced rate. We have built relationship with food distributors and are able to purchase food at lower costs than even local grocerers can purchase the same foods.

Contact us today to find our how you can engage your family, church, or business to get involved and expand access to food in Minnesota.

Please note that a financial contribution will be asked to support the sustainability of this program.
