Southeast Area Farmers Market.

Over the past 43 years, the Access of West MichiganWalk for Good has raised more than $6 million for dozens of local and international nonprofits addressing hunger and food insecurity. This year, the Walk is funding eight local organizations that are working hard to improve access to healthy foods and diminish other impacts of poverty: the Kent County Food Policy CouncilNorth End Wellness CoalitionOur Kitchen TableRevive and Thrive ProjectSECOM Resource CenterSt. Mark’s Episcopal Church, and UCOM.The work of these organizations ranges from community gardens, neighborhood-based food markets, and meal delivery programs to emergency food pantries and community development initiatives. Each walker raises donations for the Walk from their friends, family, co-workers, and congregations.

All are invited to join the walk anytime between May 2 to May 12, either individually, creating a team, or joining an existing team. (Walkers observing Ramadan can extend the end date to May 19.) Those who would rather not walk can make a donation. Donations can be made to a specific walk recipient organization, as well. It’s easy to do on the Walk for Good Food website.

Those who would rather send a check can send one to Access of West Michigan, 1700 28th Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49508.
