Kids' Food Basket is the only organization in our community dedicated to ending childhood hunger. With the support of hundreds of volunteers, we provide nearly 6,000 evening meals to kids. We also have long-term plans to increase our impact on hunger. General gifts support our current programs (including buying food and supplies) and also help us:
- Expand service. By 2013, we hope to increase our services in Kent County and continue to sustain our satellite in Muskegon.
- Engage youth. Through our Kids Helping Kids program, over 25% of hours volunteered at Kids' Food Basket come from youth age 18 and under. We plan to expand this program to 100 schools and youth organizations so more kids are aware of childhood hunger, and join us to help end it.
- Share our approach. We are exploring ways to expand our mission and model to other areas of West Michigan and beyond, with the potential of pilot projects being initiated in the next two to three years.
