We nourish children living at or near the poverty level with critical evening meals to level the playing field for their academic achievement. Equipping children and families with greater access to fresh, locally grown food can help us build a more vibrant, healthier West Michigan.

There is nothing fun about childhood hunger, but changing the world can be fun! Jump in with Kids’ Food Basket and find out how you can start making the world a better place today!
