In West Michigan alone, nearly 50,000 children are food insecure. They spend each day uncertain when they will get their next meal — a worry that no child should have.

Kids’ Food Basket began more than a decade ago to address this serious hunger issue. Today, the Grand Rapids-based nonprofit serves nutritious food to 8,000 children daily through their partnership with 45 schools. The DTE Energy Foundation has been a proud sponsor of Kids’ Food Basket since 2016, supporting the Kids’ Food Basket mission to empower communities to attack childhood hunger so that young people can learn and live well.
