KALAMAZOO, 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 receiving food. This week brought Maranda to Kalamazoo Public Schools!
Maranda stopped by Kalamazoo Public Schools to highlight and praise the food service workers who have been providing meals to hungry children since March. The team packs bags of food and then that food is taken on buses to various locations around Kalamazoo to be distributed to families in need. Maranda and the Park Party crew rode along to Interfaith Homes where they surprised families with princesses and goodie bags from Meijer! It was such a fun day greeting tons of kids and families! The food service workers in Kalamazoo are going the extra mile for their kids and by the end of the summer, they will have served over 1 million meals to kids and families! How awesome is that?
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!
