My Town: Deadline nears for 'Many Hands Against Hunger'

COMSTOCK PARK, Mich.—Time is running out to join Feeding America West Michigan for “Many Hands Against Hunger.”

Hunger hero Owen Ronning will share his inspirational story during the benefit.  Last summer, the 8-year-old boy went without the traditional birthday gifts, asking for a mobile food pantry instead.  With his parent’s encouragement, Owen went door-to-door, asking for money to make the pantry happen.  In June, his act of kindness came to fruition, as he and his friends distributed 5,000 pounds of fresh produce, milk and baked goods to 115 families in need.

The luncheon to support hunger relief is Thursday, June 10 at the Goei Center, 818 Butterworth SW in Grand Rapids.  Those interested in attending must RSVP by 12 p.m. on Friday, June 6.  Registration is available online.  Admission is $25.
