U of M Club of GR - Kids' Food Basket-Volunteer Opportunity 

Kids’ Food Basket is the largest organization in West Michigan focused solely on childhood hunger. One in five Michigan children experiences hunger, and they are working to change that by helping nourish children to be their best, in school and in life.

Through the Sack Supper program, kids get well-balanced nutritious meals, filling the gap schools and parents often can't afford. The goal is to attack childhood hunger by providing nutritious evening meals to kids, and engage the community through volunteering and education. Each school year, nearly 7500 Sack Suppers are prepared and delivered to 42 schools throughout Kent, Muskegon and Ottawa counties.

The U of M Club of Grand Rapids wants to join the attack on hunger! We are looking for volunteers to help prepare Sack Suppers on Saturday, January 27, 2018, from 10am-12pm.

However, due to space limitations at their facility, registration will be capped at (10) participants. If you are interested, please do not delay signing up here:

It will be a great opportunity to meet other alumni and help a wonderful organization and cause. Participants who register will receive additional information in a separate email.

If you have any questions, please contact Jennefer Moore at Thanks in advance for your help and GO BLUE!
