MUSKEGON, 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 recieving food. This week brought Maranda to Muskegon Public Schools!
Maranda stopped by Muskegon High School to highlight all the good the food service team is doing for kids in Muskegon! This team is pretty amazing – they begin their day loading buses with boxes of food, including dairy boxes from Milk Means More, that will be delivered to kids. Once the buses are loaded, the food service team jumps on the buses and delivers food right to kids houses throughout the community. Since March, they have delivered 500,000 meals to hungry kids. How amazing is that?!
While there, Maranda gave the food service team goodie bags from Meijer and backpacks from Priority Health to be distributed to the kids they serve. She also gave them a thank you gift with goodies inside for food service workers to thank them for all their hard work over the past few months.
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!
