The attack on hunger expands to Muskegon County!
This growth does not change our commitment to Grand Rapids. In fact, all support related to the launch of the Muskegon County satellite location has come from a separate fund, and funds given to Kids’ Food Basket in general will continue to be used in Kent County.
