APRIL EVENTS

PLANT A ROW

All Month Long

It's as simple as bringing your extra harvest to Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes. Plant a few buckets of carrots, line a flowerbed with cilantro, pick an extra basket of strawberries when you go picking - all of these things make a big difference. For more information, visit: http://kzoolf.org/plant-a-row/.

CROP Walk

April 30

Join KLF staff and volunteers at Bronson Park at 1:30 p.m. for this walk to raise awareness about local and global hunger. This short stroll through Downtown Kalamazoo signifies how far people in our community and around the world have to walk to obtain food and water each day. There's no cost to participate and the entire family is welcome. For more information, visit: http://kalamazoocropwalk.org/
