Eleven children released from hunger by student drive

Students at Rockford Christian School learned that hunger isn’t a problem only in far away places. Working with Kids Food Basket in Grand Rapids, the students raised in donations and food, a total value of $1,650, an amount which will feed eleven students after-school meals for a year.

On Wednesday, May 19, the students released 11 butterflies representing the 11 children released from hunger.

Kids Food Basket was founded by a teacher in Grand Rapids who saw kindergarten students picking through a dumpster after school. She asked them what they were doing and they said there was no food at their home. Third grade teacher Becky Werden said, “The children learned that kids can be hungry right in our own neighborhoods and community. We are always more blessed by doing projects like this.”
