never stops regardless of the season. So we carry that same spirit in serving within our communities at large.  We've experienced fruitful years and plan to expand our programs in 2023. We have faith in God to give us what we need to continue effectively serve others.

The USDA Economic Research Service reported food insecurity for the U.S. Veteran's population is 11.1%. That’s a disturbing statistic from the population that sacrificed the most.

MIWVE has partnered with Bread of the World Ministries and Hero’s Corner to provide a solution. We are asking for the entire month of December 2023, the public to pay it forward by donating food and resources for our West Michigan Veteran’s families Community.

Just drop off items at Hero’s Corner 4809 Eastern Ave Kentwood MI - Monday - Friday 10-6 pm. The official distribution food giveaway event will be on Saturday, December 30, 2023 at Noon.

See the flyer for more details and contact information, together we can bless our veterans and their families that are in need this Holiday Season.

Thanks in advance for your support ❤️🙏🏾✌🏾
