1,700 Children Served
In 2020, when the global pandemic hit, it changed the way that kits were distributed since children were no longer in school. WSK worked with each schools’ food service director to coordinate with their on-site meal pick-up. At this time, many other federally funded programs were available to families that struggle with food insecurity, WSK numbers decreased due to decreased demand. Also at this time, OCC would begin to undergo some building renovations and would no longer be the packing and staging site of the food kits. At that time, 2|42 Church in Okemos agreed to open their community space for the kit packing and staging of delivery. A second location in Lansing at Hill Center was also used in conjunction with Sodexo Food Services for kit delivery.
