Week(end) 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 and extended school breaks.

Currently, Hand2Hand is serving 6,690 students in 242 schools, ages 3-18, in  37 school districts in West Michigan.

Join the nearly 6,000 volunteers who drive the Hand2Hand grassroots movement... because a hungry child hurts.
