Summer is right around the corner and that means MATTERnation is gearing up for the fifth annual MATTERbox Madness packing tournament on May 30th at the Mall of America. This fun, high-energy event pits teams from different companies against each other in a spirited, bracket-style competition to see which team can pack MATTERboxes in the shortest amount of time. These MATTERboxes will provide nutritious meals and healthy snacks for thousands of kids across the Twin Cities this summer.
During the school year, more than 300,000 children across Minnesota receive free or reduced lunch through their schools. But once summer arrives, access to these meals can be severely limited, resulting in regularly missed meals. Together with 5 Eyewitness News Summer Harvest for Kids, MATTER is ready to help fill this summer meal gap for children.
Packed with healthy food, nutrition education and a You MATTER note of encouragement, MATTERbox meal kits and snack packs help kids and families take their first steps toward healthier eating.
Last year’s MATTERbox Madness champion, Little & Company, is looking forward to this year’s tournament and is eager to defend their title.
“It’s been an honor partnering with our friends at MATTER and an absolute thrill winning MATTERbox madness in 2018. We’re planning on bringing the heat again this year to defend our title and bring that trophy back home!” Joe Cecere, President and Chief Creative Officer, Little & Company
