Growing and strengthening west Michigan's middle class
GRAND RAPIDS March 2, 2015– Each month, the west Michigan labor community partners with a different church to host a Feeding America mobile food pantry, and union members from across the Grand Rapids area volunteer their time to help distribute the food to families in need.
The next three food trucks are scheduled to take place on March 19, April 16 and May 21.
Below are the locations for the next three food trucks:
March 19, 2015: Saint Mary Magdalen Parish, 1253 52nd St SE, Kentwood.
April 16, 2015: City Life Church, 574 Division Avenue South, Grand Rapids.
May 21, 2015: Plymouth United Church of Christ, 4010 Kalamazoo Ave SE, 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– provided by local unions, Feeding America West Michigan and Heart of West Michigan United Way– hold 5,000 pounds of produce, baked goods and other food items.
Anyone who is in-need is welcome to come and receive food, no questions asked.
