Did you know there are 1.9 million people in our state who are currently food insecure? And that a whopping 34,260 children under the age of 17 are food insecure in our local Ottawa, Allegan, Muskegon, and Kent counties, alone?
Our team at Lightpoint Insurance finds food insecurity for people of any age absolutely unacceptable. Children should not have to worry about where their next meal will come from or if they will even be able to eat. Those with food insecurity are 2.9x more likely to be in poor health, and children must be in good mental and physical health for their crucial developmental years.
This is why we’re working with Kids’ Food Basket for our holiday season Community Cause cycle. This incredible organization shares our passion for pursuing a hunger-free West Michigan and does so in a way that truly contributes to our community. Having already donated almost 1.4 million healthy meals since July 1st, 2021, and with 45,000 volunteers and 4400 students participating in Kids’ Food Basket nutrition education curriculum, the future has never looked brighter in eradicating children’s hunger locally.
Let’s all do our part: For every friend, family member, or co-worker you recommend to us for a no-obligation quote, we will donate $10 to Kids’ Food Basket in your name! By banding together, we can all make a difference in our community.
