Food From the Heart

If you were at Food From the Heart, thank you for your hard work and positive energy! It certainly was a Day of Action: We packed the Van Andel Arena with 1,000 volunteers and packed food for 200,000 meals! The meals have been delivered to Feeding America West Michigan and will be distributed to local food pantries throughout the summer.

Wondering what you can do next?

  • Text "meals" to 40403 to donate to help us solve food insecurity and other community-wide issues like housing, education, mental health, violence prevention, and workforce development. See some results from last year's funding at
  • Host a school supply collection drive for Stuff the Bus this August.
  • Join us for Day of Caring on September 15 at the Equest Center for Therapeutic Riding.
  • Are you a MyGRCityPoints user? For your participation in Food From the Heart, you earned 500 points! Login or register now & enter point code TPV4-118F.

We will continue to upload photos on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. If you have photos or posts to share, please use #FoodfromtheHeart!

We hope you have a great summer, knowing that you've made a difference for thousands of families in Kent County.

Thank you.
