Do Good

Sponsor a local child struggling with hunger for only $1 per weekday or $20 per month!

Elementary years are an important time for a child's academic and physical well-being. But without access to regular nutritious meals, they can suffer long-term effects, both academically and in overall growth and development.

Here's your chance to help kids in our community. Now you can sponsor a local child struggling with hunger for only $1 per weekday or $20 per month, thanks to a new Kids' Food Basket program known as the "Sack Supper Club." A generous donor is matching all Sack Supper Club donations leading up to Kids' Food Basket's first day of service for the 2013-14 school year on September 16.

"One in four children in Michigan struggle with hunger," says Kids' Food Basket Executive Director Bridget Clark Whitney. "Our goal is to increase the number of children fed through the Sack Supper program over the school year and serve over 5,400 kids each weekday... in a way that's dignifying and accessible.

"We know that when kids have access to food their minds and bodies grow strong and they do better in school," says Whitney. "This is a community problem, and we have developed a community solution. Kids' Food Basket's mission is to ensure children in our community have the nutrition they need to succeed in school and in life."

Kids' Food Basket is the only organization in West Michigan focused solely on childhood hunger. As of July 1, the organization has served more than 680,000 kids in the 10 years since its inception.
