BATTLE CREEK, Mich (WOOD) – Maranda continues to stop by various feeding locations throughout West Michigan to celebrate all the great work food service workers have been doing the past few months as well as say hi to families as they wait for their food.
Maranda’s most recent stop brought her to Valley View Elementary through Battle Creek Public Schools to celebrate all the great work they are doing for kids! It was such a fun day of dancing, celebrating, and bringing smiles to families of Battle Creek! Each family recieved bags from Meijer and Priority Health, dairy boxes from Milk Means More, and delicious breakfast and lunch from the food service workers! It was a great day! Thank you to the Battle Creek Community Foundation for helping us make this happen!
Food service workers have been working hard since March 17th to provide daily meals to families in need throughout West Michigan. Now, Maranda wants to show appreciation for all they have done for our kids the past few months. Thank you to our generous partners for providing gifts to give to the food service heroes!
