On Wednesday, March 26th, the teams from iSpace Furniture and MSpace rolled up their sleeves, threw on their chef’s hats and made over 1,000 sandwiches that were delivered that very evening to those in need in Minneapolis.
Our two companies broke into seven inter-company teams, each contributing an hour to the cause, and, of course, there was a Team Spirit Competition. It was rewarding work for a great cause – and a wonderful team-building exercise as well! Have a look at this video which captures the energy of the day (and see more team photos on our facebook page.)
About the 363 Days Food Program
The 363 Days Food Program is a Minneapolis Recreation Development, Inc. (MRD) affiliate which distributes 1,600 sandwiches per night to the hungry. Last year 363 Days Food Program distributed over 500,000 sandwiches and water to the homeless in Minneapolis! Allan Law, a retired inner city Minneapolis school teacher, started MRD in 1967. Law personally drives a van around Minneapolis from 9pm-10am every night feeding the hungry. He’s been awarded countless awards for his public service including three from U.S. Presidents recognizing his amazing contributions to society. The mission of 363 days food program is “Love One Another” and the guiding principal is “Judge our society by how we care for our children and the disadvantaged” – ideas shared by numerous compassionate thinkers throughout the ages.
363 Days Founder Allan Law Featured in Upcoming Film Festival Featured Documentary The Starfish Throwers
“Half a world apart, a five-star chef, a retired school teacher and a sixth-grade master gardener fight for a seemingly lost cause—until they discover their impact may reach further than their own actions.” The Starfish Throwers is a documentary by Jesse Roesler about three individuals from around the world (the retired school teacher is Allen Law) who have made a serious impact on hunger.
Jesse Roesler as an Emmy award-winning film maker from Minneapolis, his movie The Starfish Throwers will be showing at the St Anthony Main Theatre in Minneapolis at 7pm on Thursday, April 10th & 4:30pm on Saturday, April 12th.
