On May 30, we will host a phone bank live from the Mall of America beginning in our 6 a.m. newscast and airing all day.

Sign up to pack healthy food for kids with your favorite anchors and be part of the event. Dave Dahl, Joe Schmit, Leah McLean, Jackie Cain, Paul Folger, Christ Egert, Megan Newquist, Ken Barlow, Josie Smith, Kevin Doran, Lindsey Brown, Jonathan Yuhas, Chris Long and Doogie will all be there.

Businesses can compete against one another thanks to MATTER Box Madness, a friendly contest that will bring together companies to pack food for kids in need.

"We bring together over 30 companies (to) have some friendly competition (that) hits on team-building employee engagement," Tyler Van Eps of MATTER said. "Again, we have a lot of fun with it and it's in the spirit of making a huge impact the community."
