“This time of year, Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes is stocking up for the summer months when so many children miss meals because school is not in session. As a community, we have to keep the food flowing all year round so kids have what they need to live healthy, active lives. We want to make sure that kids are given the best chance for success and regular access to food,” said Jennifer Johnson, executive director of Loaves & Fishes. All donations are appreciated, especially these kid-friendly items: boxed pasta meals; low-sugar apple sauce or fruit cups; peanut butter; warm and cold cereals; health snacks such as granola bars, dried fruit and popcorn; and 100 percent fruit/veggie juices.
