‘Fill-a-Bag’ fundraiser helps stock shelves at local feeding program

IM Kids 3rd Meal Program awards 'Golden Bag Award' after holiday food drive

 


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  (WOTV)- The IM Kids 3rd Meal hosted a “Fill-A-Bag” fundraiser with a friendly competition between the Ionia County and the Montcalm Area Intermediate School Districts; raising 365 bags of food! It was a wonderful food drive with a close competition; Ionia filled 170 bags and Montcalm filled 195 bags!

The IM Kids 3rd Meal provided reusable bags for community members to fill with items off of their wish list. Every item donated will be used to provide ready-to-eat meals to over 449 food insecure elementary school students in Ionia and Montcalm Counties.

Congratulations to the Montcalm Area ISD, they are the winner of the “Golden Bag” trophy.

“The real winner is the IM Kids 3rd Meal Program. WOW….365 bags, that’s fantastic!”, said Ron Simon, MAISD Superintendent.

“A big thank you to all who participated in filling a bag; each item and each bag makes a difference in the lives of food insecure children in our two counties,” said Deborah Wagner, IM Kids 3rd Meal Coordinator.

IM Kids 3rd Meal needs strong community support to keep running and reach even more students.
