Preschool Students Decorate 1,400 Brown Paper Bags to Support Children Experiencing Food Insecurity | Schools
Rainbow Child Care Center locations throughout West Michigan teamed up with Kids’ Food Basket, a local nonprofit organization attacking childhood hunger, to support children experiencing food insecurity. The preschool students decorated brown paper bags for children aided by Kids’ Food Basket’s Sack Supper program, which serves 7,500 kids each weekday in West Michigan.
All eight West Michigan Rainbow Child Care Center locations decorated 1,400 bags with positive images using crayons and markers. Each decorated sack not only provides a well-rounded nutritious meal critical to the development of the brain and body, but also helps brighten each recipient’s day.
“As a child care organization, we strive to continually serve all the children in the communities we serve in whatever way we can,” said Stacy Shotko, regional manager of Rainbow Child Care Center. “Our students were eager to work with Kids’ Food Basket on an activity they could participate in firsthand. Our hope is that each child that receives a bag decorated by our students feels loved and that it brings a smile to their face.”
Other organizations interested in decorating brown paper bags are encouraged to do so by October 22 in support of Kids’ Food Basket’s annual Brown Bag Decorating Day. For more information on Rainbow Child Care Centers please visit their website at rainbowccc.com.
