My Message

Those who know me, know that I am deeply passionate about men, women, and children who go hungry, especially in the United States of America, the richest nation on Earth.  I cannot sit idly by and watch people go hungry or struggle daily to afford good food.  Yes, right here in West Michigan, we have many hungry and struggling families.  For this reason, I am walking with my Dominican brothers and sisters and many other fine people in the hope of cultivating a good food system in West Michigan, a system in which healthy (food that provides nourishment and enables people to thrive), fair (food that no one along the production line was exploited during its creation), affordable (food that all people have access to), and green (food that was produced in a manner that is environmentally sustainable) food are available to all.  This year I am walking in memory of my late uncle, Ronald J. Kozal, who dedicated forty plus years of his life to serving the poor and struggling in West Michigan through his Thanksgiving Dinners at the West Side Complex, his volunteering to direct the Saint Vincent de Paul stores in Grand Rapids and Muskegon, and his volunteering to help the struggling at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.  He taught me how very important it is to go to where the people are, that includes going to those on the fringes of society.   Consequently, I am kindly asking for your financial support to help the people in West Michigan who go to bed hungry every night.  Won't you please sponsor me as I participate in the Access Walk For Good Food, formerly known as the Access Hunger Walk?  Every single penny helps, and donating online is easy and fully secure.  Your deduction is even tax deductible.  If you are uncomfortable donating online, please private message me, and I will provide you with an alternate method of donating to this extremely important cause.  This year's walk takes place on Sunday, May 6, 2018, and begins at 1:30 PM at Park Congregational Church in downtown Grand Rapids.  Thank you in advance for helping me stamp out hunger.  Jarek (Jeff) Kozal
