GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A 14 gallon Rubbermaid tub or a day of driving sack suppers to elementary schools can both go far to helping the Kids' Food Basket meet their goal of providing a daily meal to as many children who may otherwise go hungry as possible. The Kids' Food Basket operates in the greater Grand Rapids area by bringing a nutritious sack suppers to children in schools where more than 80% of students are living below the poverty line and many take their school lunch as their last meal of the day. This is only possible through the donations and help of volunteers. Some specific needs they are looking to fill include volunteer drivers to bring tubs of sack suppers to schools for delivery to kids, volunteers to hold food drives to collect juice boxes and other items that are packed in the sack supers, 14 gallon Rubbermaid tubs to transport the sack suppers in, money to maintain the program and get help to some of the eight schools now on a waiting list, and a new or gently used commercial refrigerator for their Muskegon based operation. Another way to help is to attend the Concert to Restore Michigan on October 27 at 7:30 p.m.. at Forest Hills Fine Arts Center. Tickets are $15 and proceeds will benefit the Kids' Food Basket.
