In honor of National Stamp Out Hunger day, Vista IT Group held a food drive to collect food and supplies to benefit Kids’ Food Basket. 

Founded over a decade ago, Kids Food Basket is a grassroots, community lead initiative to address childhood hunger. KFB got its start by serving just over 100 kids through their Sack Supper program. Today they provide sack lunches for nearly 7,500 West Michigan children each and every day.

 If you would like more information on Kids’ Food Basket or if you would like to make a donation, you can visit their website at: https://www.kidsfoodbasket.org/.

In one week, the Vista team was able to collect more than 200 pounds of food for donation. "It's been awesome seeing the company come together to support these kids!” said Molly Walker, food drive coordinator, “Vista has been pretty hands on with this organization, and the food drive gave everyone an opportunity to participate."

Vista will also be sponsoring the Kids’ Food Basket Feed a School for a Year Golf Outing at Watermark Country Club on June 5, 2018.

Part of our cultural commitment is to get involved and make an impact in our community.  Over the past year we have volunteered at Kid’s Food Basket headquarters several times, hosted a Toys for Tots drive, donated books to a local school’s library, and participated in several philanthropic activities to support our local community.
