Summer Harvest for Kids

The 5 Eyewitness News Summer Harvest for Kids campaign was created because we believe no Minnesota kid should go hungry over the summer. We've teamed up with MATTER and The Food Group to make this dream a reality.

The 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Summer Harvest for Kids campaign raised more than $280,000, which means more than 565,000 kids will be served a lunch this summer. There were more than 100 volunteers answering phones and processing donations during the 16-hour phone bank on Thursday, June 14th at the Mall of America. Additionally, there were more than 20 teams of volunteers, joining the hundreds of on-the-spot volunteers packing MATTERboxes in the Mall of America's rotunda.
