Fundraising Events

We have the power to create an impact, one meal at a time.

In the U.S., more than 1 in 6 children don’t know where their next meal is coming from and often go to bed hungry. No child, regardless of age, should be worried about hunger.

The cost per meal to feed
a family of 6 is only

$1.80

Feeding a child breakfast, lunch, and dinner for an entire month is only

$30

Our communities need us.

Let’s end hunger, one donation at a time.

The Brainerd Lakes Outreach Program is a compassionate humanitarian organization dedicated to providing essential food assistance.

Our unwavering mission is feeding families and enriching lives.  Located in the Brainerd Lakes area, 80-90% of the meals we package will be distributed right here in Minnesota. The remaining 10-20% will be used for disaster relief and/or international distribution.

meals packed since 2012

We package 10 different meals that are nutrient dense, including protein, vitamins, and minerals. They only require 3-8 cups of boiling water, and each packet contains 6 servings.
