IONIA Mich. (WOTV)-Local bands came together to raise money, and provide meals for kids living in food insecure homes. The Ionia Intermediate School District and the IM Kids 3rd Meal program hosted local bands, at the Candlestone Golf and Resort, as they performed at the annual event, BANDING AGAINST HUNGER.
Why is this important? 1 in 5 children in Ionia County and 1 in 4 children in Montcalm County are food insecure. IM Kids 3rd Meal is a feeding program committed to ending childhood hunger in Ionia and Montcalm counties by providing daily evening meals to 500 food insecure children. For every $1 IM Kids 3rd Meal can provide a food insecure child with a 3rd Meal that is well balanced and ready to eat. 100% of the proceeds raised for IM Kids 3rd Meal will go directly to feeding children.
