Local bands come together to fight hunger


IONIA Mich. (WOOD TV)-Local bands came together to help provide meals for kids living in food insecure homes. The Ionia Intermediate School District is supporting the IM Kids 3rd Meal program, as they hosted local bands to perform at the annual event, BANDING AGAINST HUNGER.

Why is this important? 1 in 5 children in Ionia County and 1 in 4 children in Montcalm County are food insecure. IM Kids 3rd Meal is a feeding program committed to ending childhood hunger in Ionia and Montcalm counties by providing daily evening meals to 500 food insecure children.

For every $1 IM Kids 3rd Meal can provide a food insecure child with a 3rd Meal that is well balanced and ready to eat. 100% of the proceeds raised for IM Kids 3rd Meal will go directly to feeding children.

Help to ensure that school lunch isn’t the last meal of the day for children. Decorate brown paper bags for meals, and mail them to H.O. Steele Education Center

10260 S Sheridan Rd. Fenwick, MI 48834. To volunteer time packing lunches, or to make a donation of food or money, Email: imkids3rdmeal@gmail.com.
