Summer Harvest: MATTERbox Competition at Mall of America

June 06, 2018 09:11 AM

With the school year ending, Summer Harvest is here once again.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has teamed up with MATTER and The Food Group to keep kids fed through summer. 


This year, there is an exciting opportunity for those interested in helping. Those are invited to join at the Mall of America to pack MATTERboxes. 

Many children who receive free and reduced food at school, lose access to those meals during the summer. These boxes help fill the void.

"This is a huge deal in our community," Tyler Van Eps, with MATTER, said. "Getting attention, we can make a difference in the community by activating these partnerships."

As part of the big event at the Mall of America on June 14, companies will compete in "MATTERbox Madness." Whoever packs the most boxes wins.
