North Central NAMA Joins Global Hunger Effort

Written by NAMA on Friday, November 1, 2019 , 12:29 pm

North Central NAMA joined the effort to reduce global hunger this month at Feed My Starving Children in Eagan, Minnesota. The group joined other organizations to pack MannaRice meals to send to undernourished children overseas. They packed meals that would make their way to Haiti.

The music started and the packing began! The perfectly portioned meals provided a task for everyone in attendance, and the assembly line got more and more efficient with each pack. In just under an hour’s time, they helped pack enough meals to ensure food security for 49 children over the next 365 days.

Members enjoyed engaging in such a purposeful activity that will have meaningful global impact.

Everyone was able to learn from one another during the Peer-to-Peer Q&A and each was able to take something actionable away from the meeting. Watch for information on the next Cornhusker event.

Waldoch Farms Hosts North Central NAMA

Written by NAMA on Thursday, October 17, 2019 , 12:20 pm

North Central NAMA hit the road to visit Waldoch Farm in Lino Lakes, MN for their September “Fall Fun” event. The farm offered activities for all ages and interests. Some hopped on the hayride or mingled through the corn maze. Others slid down the slide or sped away in the pedal carts. Attendees enjoyed tasting the farm’s famous kettle corn and connecting with peers.

In addition to the fun, they made time to learn from Waldoch Farm experts. They shared how they market the farm – both its fun events and unique products. Members also learned about the vital role of bees on the farm. A bee expert from the University of Minnesota joined the group for the evening, as well.

It was an evening of fall fun, thanks to Waldoch Farm.
