The final tally is in, and with your help,  WZZM 13, Spartan Stores and The River 100.5, collected nearly 300,000 pounds of food through the Food for Families Campaign this summer.  All of us at The River 100.5, Townsquare Media, were really proud to team up with Spartan Stores and TV 13 for the first time this year.  We’re looking forward to a long relationship.

WZZM TV13 says that now all of the collected food will be delivered.  At Spartan Stores warehouse in Wyoming, movers began dividing up the non-perishables to restock 23 food pantries across West Michigan.

Nicole DeVries with Access Kent says, ”There’s 10 different counties, like I said, that are getting this food, and it’s the pantries that are serving your neighbors.”

In Kent County alone, Access Kent serves 6,500 families each month.  All of the food should have arrived yesterday to replenish pantry shelves.
