KDL Gives Back: Kids Food Basket

Kids Food Basket SacksThank you for helping us address childhood hunger in Kent County by supporting Kids’ Food Basket! During the month of April, KDL Gives Back sponsored juice box collection and bag decorating stations at all 18 branches. Together we were able to collect and donate 1,300 juice boxes and 2,500 brown paper lunch bags. Thank you for your generosity!

In addition to the donations, over 70 KDL staff, family and friends were able to spend two great evenings at Kids’ Food Basket making close to 4,500 sandwiches and packing just as many sack suppers!

Kids’ Food Basket is a nonprofit West Michigan organization whose mission is to make sure children in our community do not go to bed hungry. The group began more than nine years ago by serving 125 kids every school day through its Sack Supper program, and now serves nearly 5,000 kids every day.
