Muskegon, Mich. – COVID-19. Unemployment. Medical expenses. There are many causes of hunger in the Muskegon Community. AgeWell Services of West Michigan has worked to help feed our aging neighbors since 1973. When the City of Muskegon called on AgeWell Services to use its experience to help feed the city, the team was ready to pitch in.
Using funding from the CARES Act CDBG funding, the City of Muskegon, AgeWell Services, and the Muskegon YMCA will host two curbside food distribution events.
The first event will take place on Wednesday, June 30th from noon to 2 pm at Marsh Field, 1800 Peck St. The second curbside event will be July 7th from noon to 2 pm in the Baker College parking lot, 878 Jefferson St., in Downtown Muskegon near the Muskegon Farmer’s Market.
Both events are open to the public and are first come, first serve. There are no age restrictions for these distributions. The events will be drive-thru. Participants will receive a bundle of frozen meals from AgeWell Services and a produce box from the Muskegon YMCA Veggie Van.
