Kids’ Food Basket breaks ground on new facility

Maranda

Today is a day of celebration for Kid’s Food Basket, marking the ground breaking of a new facility centered around urban farming. Through classroom interaction and hands-on learning, kids are planting, harvesting, and getting the nutrition they need.

Sixteen years ago, Kids Food Basket started by respond to a need in our community: getting healthy food to kids who needed it. The problem has never been a lack of food but a lack of access to food. Kid’s Food Basket exists to increase that access.

They began by feeding 125 kids a day, and the need has only continued to grow in West Michigan. Now they feed 8000 kids throughout our community.
