The staff and volunteers at Minnie’s Food Pantry are excitedly awaiting the delivery of Oprah Winfrey’s new food line, O That’s Good. On Monday, March 26, the national non-profit welcomed a delivery of healthy soups and sides made with a nutritional twist. With Oprah Winfrey confirmed as the keynote speaker for Minnie’s Food Pantry’s 10th Annual Feed Just One Gala on April 3, it’s fitting that their clients will receive her food as well.
Albertson’s/Tom Thumb, Fossil, Toyota and a host of other companies, have joined forces with Minnie’s Food Pantry to support the 10th Annual Feed Just One Gala. Alberton’s/Tom Thumb is the title sponsor and Fossil Group is the premier sponsor for the event.
Toyota is the presenting sponsor of the event and the Minnie Ewing-Legacy Award. The legacy award identifies, supports and celebrates individuals who have demonstrated “the heart of a giver” in the same way that Minnie Ewing lived her life. It acknowledges individuals who have exhibited outstanding leadership and contributed at least 300,000 meals to Minnie’s Food Pantry. This year’s honorees for the Minnie Ewing-Legacy Award are Emmy® nominated actress, author and President of LightWorkers Media, Roma Downey and award-winning television and film producer Mark Burnett, President of MGM Television Group and Digital.
