Kids’ Food Basket
, a non profit organization, is a force for "Attacking Childhood Hunger." Its mission is to ensure children in the community do not go to bed hungry.
KFB began over ten years ago by serving 125 kids each school day through the Sack Supper program and now serve nearly 6,000 kids each day in greater Grand Rapids and Muskegon. Sack Suppers are evening meals that provide a well-rounded, nutritious meal —nutrition that’s critical to the development of kids’ brains and bodies.
With these evening meals, KFB attacks childhood hunger by:
- Serving kids directly. Sack Suppers are distributed within classrooms or at local parks, meaning every child who needs one can get one easily and safely.
- Creating an engine for volunteering. KFB's work is driven by the love and support of the community, with over 175 volunteers packing and delivering Sack Suppers every day. Many more lead juice box and snack drives and fund drives.
- Empowering kids to help each other. Through volunteering and educational programs, KFB helps kids understand hunger and lead projects to end it. Over 25 percent of hours volunteered come from youth under age 18.
