20,000 Hungry Kids in Kalamazoo; Here’s How You Can Help
Help us feed those with food insecurities in Kalamazoo County as we team up with Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes and On Staff U.S.A. for Dollar Drive Thru 2022.
What is Dollar Drive-Thru?
Every year Loaves & Fishes in partnership with On Staff U.S.A. and Townsquare Media, spend a full day raising money to feed families with food insecurities in Kalamazoo county. With just a one-dollar donation, Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes can use its purchasing power to secure enough food for three days or approximately $10 worth of food, allowing the community to make a huge impact in the lives of those who need it most. This is the 11th annual Dollar Drive-Thru event.
Why do we do Dollar Drive-Thru?
On average, nearly 20,000 children will go to bed hungry each night this summer in Kalamazoo county. Studies have shown that without proper nutrition kids can't develop physically, intellectually, and emotionally. Not to mention, inflation, gas prices and daycare prices have skyrocketed.
