GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- The Ionia & Montcalm Area Intermediate School Districts are proud to support the IM (Ionia-Montcalm) Kids 3rd Meal Program, which supplies a 3rd meal to kids in food insecure homes in Ionia and Montcalm counties. Currently the program serves four schools but with continued and increased community support the program has room to grow.
The 3rd Meals are prepared by volunteers at the H.O. Steele Education Center, delivered to schools in the afternoon and then distributed to the students before they are dismissed for the day. Each 3rd Meal is a well-balanced, ready-to-eat evening meal that students receive each school day.
The program relies on donations and volunteers and is looking for more community members/groups to get involved. If you’re interested in helping please visit the IM Kids 3rd Meal Program website.
