MUSKEGON, Mich (WOOD) - For ten years, Kids' Food Basket has been fighting childhood hunger in the Great Grand Rapids area, and now it's reaching out to kids on the lakeshore. Joy Walczak went to Muskegon to check out their operation inside Central United Methodist Church and how Ronald McDonald Charities of Outstate Michigan is helping. According to Feeding America Map the Meal Gap, one in four children in Michigan live in food-insecure households, meaning they do not know where their next meal is coming from. With the help of many sponsors like the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Outstate Michigan , Kids' Food Basket was able to expand their services to Muskegon Heights. The Sack Supper Program is now attacking hunger and feeding thousands of kids in Muskegon County.
