Kids' Food Basket


Kids' Food Basket helps nourish children living at or near the poverty level with critical evening meals to level the playing field for their academic achievement by providing Sack Suppers. This is a free, well-balanced evening meal full of nutritious food delivered to children so that they can perform their best. Sack Suppers are distributed within classrooms at the end of each school day and during summer programs too, meaning every child in need can get one easily and safely. Kids’ Food Basket serves children who attend schools where 70% or more of the student population receive free or reduced-cost lunch.

First National Bank of Michigan is proud to support Kids’ Food Basket and the 8000 children at 47 schools in Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Holland that receive a nutritious Sack Supper each and every weekday. We are a sponsor for the 17th annual Feast For Kids happening on May 8, 2019! Chefs and students work side by side to provide a four-course feast with an auction to benefit Kids' Food Basket. We thank the nearly 250 volunteers that prepare, pack and deliver these meals every single day and educate our youth on making smart food choices. Equipping children and families with greater access to fresh, locally grown food can help build a more vibrant, healthier West Michigan, a goal First National Bank of Michigan takes to heart.
