Be a Part of the Solution to Hunger in West Michigan: A BL²END Community Outreach Event

October 15, 2016 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Please join us Saturday, October 15, for an opportunity to volunteer with Feeding America West Michigan at our upcoming Community Outreach event! Just 3 hours of your day could make all the difference for local starving families in the community.

While most Americans are secure in knowing where their next meal will come from, millions are not. Right here in West Michigan, 1 in 8 families have unreliable access to healthy food. The need is even greater among children. Feeding America West Michigan exists to ensure safe food is available to the hungry in our community. Their efforts provide food to 492,100 people in need each year.

Participants will join us in sorting and repacking donations of fresh food to be distributed to area charity organizations. Please dress comfortably with closed toed/heel shoes as there will be breakout groups that will tour the Feeding America warehouse. Parking as well as snacks and beverages will be provided onsite.

For any questions, please contact our Community Outreach Chair, Rumeal Mckinney, at community@grblend.org. Make sure to follow our Facebook andTwitter for additional information!
