Hope For Kids Dinner
"Last night as we gathered for our annual Hope for Kids Dinner I was reminded again of how many caring and compassionate people live in West Michigan." Cheri Honderd
childhood hunger in West Michigan
Over 80,000 kids in West Michigan receive free and reduced lunch at school 5 days a week. That does not include the weekend!
That’s roughly 1,112 school buses filled with kids being dropped off at home each weekend who are at real risk of having little to no food for 68 hours!
Hand2Hand exists to eliminate that 68 hour gap so every kid has an opportunity to thrive.
Hand2Hand does that by mobilizing schools, churches, businesses and individuals to provide a backpack of nutritious food over the weekend.
Currently, Hand2Hand is serving over 7,500 students in 200 schools, ages 3-18, in 8 counties in West Michigan.
Join the over 5,000 volunteers who drive the Hand2Hand grassroots movement… because a hungry child hurts.
