GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-- Gov. Snyder traded in his suit coat for an apron Tuesday to help fight childhood hunger at Kids’ Food Basket.
The governor and his staff joined volunteers from AmeriCorps Grand Rapids in packing meals for Grand Rapids-area students to take home from school.
Kids’ Food Basket provides about 6,000 sack dinners for children in 31 schools. Each day, approximately 200 volunteers prepare sack suppers for students in schools in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Godwin Heights, Wyoming and Muskegon Heights.
Last summer, the nonprofit also served food to more than 2,000 children at 29 parks and schools each day for nine weeks.
