Child hunger is prevalent throughout the world and the United States is no exception. Some children don’t know where their next meal will come from. Kids’ Food Basket (KFB) is a non-profit organization located in Grand Rapids and Muskegon. The organization fights to endchild hunger and strives to engage the west Michigan community.

Their mission is to end childhood hunger by providing nutritious meals for kids. With the help of the community, KFB provides meals for children every weekday with their Sack Suppers program. Volunteers are extremely important at KFB because about 5,000 meals per week are packed and distributed to kids who participate in the program. The organization also provides empowerment for kids to rise above financial hardships.

On June 8, KFB will be hosting their 10 Year Family Gala, at Aquinas College’s Brookby Estate. There will be food and cocktails from local restaurants, live comedy and music performances and more.
