Food donations help feed hungry kids

The food donations drive, which began on Nov. 12 and ran through Dec. 1 at the Grand Valley State University Recreation Center, collected food donations for Hand2Hand Ministries, a local resource for children that are struggling with the hunger. Over the weekend, the goods were given so that children have a higher likelihood in succeeding academically, emotionally, and physically. This process is done by providing each child with a backpack every Friday in the kid’s locker to take home. Items donated included granola bars, juice boxes, pudding and fruit cups, small beef jerky sticks, crackers, small boxes of low sugar cereal, and breakfast bars.
