Meals for Minneapolis

Maranatha's Meals For Minneapolis is a fundraiser that fits the mission of the Academy. It really is a win-win-win scenario. The local community wins because local food shelves will receive upwards of 30,000 meals that are packed by MCA students. The students win because they learn to serve by packing these meals and learn about the growing challenge of hunger in the Twin Cities. Finally, Maranatha Christian Academy wins by raising funds that will help the Academy fulfill its mission.

Important Info:

  • Fundraising Websites: Every student will be asked to create their very own fundraising website through our FundEasy site.
    • We ask that pre-kindergarten and lower school parents set up sites for their student. We have easy to follow step-by-step instructions that will make this process as streamlined as possible.
    • We ask that each upper school student set up their own fundraising site during. Parents, please ask to make sure that your student has done so.
