As part of our community initiative, Legacy Trust employees volunteered at Kids’ Food Basket making sacked suppers.
Kids’ Food Basket is the largest organization in West Michigan solely focused on childhood hunger – they serve over 7,000 kids in the greater Grand Rapids and Muskegon area – 34 elementary schools in Grand Rapids participate in the program, with an additional 7 schools on the waiting list. Each sack supper is handed out at school and taken home for a well-balanced evening meal. When paired with other meals at school, the sack supper rounds out the daily nutritional requirements for children. During the summertime, Kids’ Food Basket works with various clubs, parks and schools to distribute over 3,000 meals to children.
