Motivational Monday: Kids’ Food Basket

Kids' Food Basket

Did you know? One in five Michigan kids is affected by hunger. Kent County alone has 28,700 children that are considered “food insecure.” Kids’ Food Basket is leading the way to ensure that kids in our community don’t miss any meals.

Each and every weekday Kids’ Food Basket and their many volunteers are serving children across West Michigan with healthy sack suppers.

In fact, this non-profit is poised for growth and doing so much good that they’ve recently purchased land for a move to a larger facility. One crucial factor that impacted the location is public transportation access. On average, Kids’ Food Basket’s has about 175 volunteers per day and many of them ride the bus to get to their shifts.

Find out how Kids’ Food Basket and their wonderful team of volunteers are making a difference in a child’s life.
