Growing and strengthening west Michigan's middle class
GRAND RAPIDS February 10, 2015– Kent-Ionia Labor’s next three food trucks are scheduled to take place on February 19, March 19 and April 16. The February truck will be hosted by Plymouth United Church of Christ in Grand Rapids.
Each month, the west Michigan labor community partners with a different church to host a mobile food pantry, and union members from across the Grand Rapids area volunteer their time to help distribute the food to families in need.
Below are the locations for the next three food trucks:
Feb 19, 2015: Plymouth United Church of Christ, 4010 Kalamazoo Avenue SE, Grand Rapids. Cancelled due to weather.
March 19, 2015: Saint Mary Magdalen Parish, 1253 52nd St SE, Kentwood.
April 16, 2015: City Life Church, 574 Division Avenue South, Grand Rapids.
Unless otherwise noted, volunteers should meet at the church at 3:30pm, food distribution starts at 4:00pm and continues until food is gone (usually takes about an hour). Anyone is welcome to come and volunteer their time to help distribute the food.
The trucks, sponsored by local unions and provided by Feeding America West Michigan, hold 5,000 pounds of produce, baked goods and other food items.
Anyone who is in-ineed is welcome to come and receive food, no questions asked.
