About Kids’ Food Basket

Kids’ Food Basket is a grassroots, community solution to childhood hunger. We engage all who care about children reaching their full potential – in school and in life. We began over a decade ago by serving 125 kids each school day through our Sack Supper program and now serve nearly 8,800 kids each weekday in West Michigan.

Servings of Produce Harvested

When capacity and funding allow, KFB staff analyzes the most up-to-date data to determine our next service location. As every school has children who are experiencing food insecurity, our goal is to identity where our resources will have the greatest individual and community impact. Please see our Nourish commitment for the criteria being used.
