About The Sandwich Project: Make a Difference

Each year, various organizations put together programs for Thanksgiving and Christmas to help feed, clothe and take care of those less fortunate. There is a remarkable amount of time, energy and money that goes into these programs. An honest question, pondered by those who participate is; what happens the other days of the year?

The Sandwich Project was established with the other days in mind. Our starting goal was to help feed 150 homeless people in Minneapolis as many times a year as possible, with the ultimate goal of doing it everyday of the year. Today, we are helping to feed about 4,500 people per week through various shelters and food shelves!

If you’re visiting our website, it’s safe to assume that you have the luxury of internet, a computer, a comfortable life style, disposable income, usable talents, and intelligence. Have you ever wondered how you could make a difference in the world, but perhaps don’t have as much time as you’d like? An act of kindness need not be a huge one to make a difference. We have a way you can help with just a small amount of time and a small amount of money that will make a big difference. A journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step, and we can get you started.

The Sandwich Project is a grass roots organization built on anonymous donations of time, talent and treasures. All donations are given and used with the purpose of feeding those less fortunate.

“…when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.”

It is easier to feed 150 people than you might think. It simply takes 1 trip to a local grocery store or a call to Coborns Delivers to purchase the supplies, and then preparing 150 sandwiches. Six people can prepare 150 sandwiches in about 30 minutes. The total cost would be approximately $100 total. Such a small thing, but it will end up feeding 150 people who need it the most in Minneapolis. Click Here for simple instructions.
