Mark your calendars before things get any busier! Our annual Secular Service Project at Kids’ Food Basket will be Saturday January 5, 2019. Kids’ Food Basket is a nonprofit organization that attacks childhood hunger through their Sack Supper program, which now serves nearly 10,000 kids each weekday in West Michigan. Sack Suppers are well-rounded meals which provide nutrition necessary for a child’s development. Our project will be to compile the single serving portions which will later be assembled into the suppers. We need 20 volunteers willing to work in a friendly, fun atmosphere. Our two-hour stint, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 am, usually flies by in no time. Kids 5 and older are welcome (though must be accompanied by an adult up to 15). We will assemble at 9:25 a.m. sharp and begin after a brief orientation. One step that is new this year is that each volunteer needs to create their own account with Kids’ Food Basket. This should be done before the event and can be done online by going to:

https://kidsfoodbasket.volunteerhub.com

Only fill out your own account. The information about the organization and time slot have been already accounted for.

Kids’ Food basket is located at 2055 Oak Industrial Dr. NE #C Grand Rapids, 49505.
