Kids’ Food Basket to Host Free Family Fun at Third Annual Fall Fest

Kids’ Food Basket to Host Free Family Fun at Third Annual Fall Fest

Join Kids’ Food Basket (KFB) in October as we host the community for the third-annual Fall Fest on Kids’ Food Basket Farms. This year, there will be twin festivals taking place on each of KFB’s 10-acre farms, with Kent County event scheduled for October 1 and the Ottawa County festival to take place October 7. Both events are free and open to the public.

During both open houses, KFB invites guests to soak up the ambiance of a fully functional community farm. Guests will also enjoy fall treats, lawn games, volunteer opportunities and activity stations for the whole family. The activities will include apple taste tests, family friendly STEM games, a fall photobooth and more.

The event will also feature cider and donuts to enjoy on KFB’s welcoming and accessible barn patios.

The event on October 1 will be hosted at the KFB Farm Kent County, located at 1300 Plymouth Ave NE in Grand Rapids. The October 7 event will be hosted at KFB Farm – Ottawa + Allegan On the Ridge, located on the grounds of Ridge Point Community Church at 340 104th Ave in Holland, and celebrates the farm’s first full growing season. Both fests run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

“What I love most about Fall Fest is that it is for everyone,” said KFB President and Founding CEO Bridget Clark Whitney. “Our beautiful state is a top agricultural producer, and we invite everyone to engage in this agricultural momentum for themselves on our gorgeous farms. When we connect to nature, where good food comes from and to community, we become stronger, together.”

Both Fall Fests invite the entire community to enjoy autumnal splendor while celebrating a bountiful harvest. This summer and fall, Kids’ Food Basket has harvested over 160,000 servings of fresh vegetables and fruits from its farms. This produce has been distributed to local community partners such as Kent ISD, Baxter Community Center and Community Action House. Vegetables like cucumbers and green beans have also gone directly into Sack Suppers, which are healthy evening meals delivered to kids through classrooms and summer drop sites.
