Join the attack!
Together, we can give kids a healthy start in life. Thousands of greater Grand Rapids community members have joined us as volunteers. Packing and delivering nearly 5,000 Sack Suppers demands the love and support of over 175 volunteers every day -- plus many others who lead food drives, decorate sack suppers, and more! How will you be part of the attack on childhood hunger?

Do you offer volunteer opportunities for kids and teens?
Yes! Over 25% of the hours volunteered at Kids' Food Basket come from youth under age 18. We encourage families to volunteer together, and we also offer youth-led volunteering through our Kids Helping Kids program.
Are there opportunities to volunteer off-site (not at Kids' Food Basket)?
Yes! We need your help, and not always at our facility! While many people think about volunteering by packing Sack Suppers, there are many other ways to get involved. You can lead a food and juice box drive, pack snacks and trail mix, decorate Sack Supper bags, and more. If you have a specific idea in mind for a project, please contact us.
Do you need help with administrative support?
Yes! There are many important jobs our staff does each day that allow us to communicate the important information to our volunteers and donors. If you like working with computers and are good with words, this might be perfect for you! Thank you letters, helping with events, volunteer appreciation activities, and database work are just a few ways you can help! Please contact us to learn more.
