GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A drive-through food giveaway is being held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Grand Rapids this afternoon.


The event, organized by Sysco of Michigan, the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association Educational Foundation, and the Michigan Hospitality Industry Employee Relief Fund, is meant to support hospitality and restaurant workers that are experiencing financial hardships.

We're told Sysco has donated 400 boxes of food meant to feed families of four.

The giveaway is scheduled to run from 1 to 3 p.m. today.

Hospitality workers are asked to bring the invitation they were given by either their employer or the Michigan Hospitality Industry Employee Relief Fund.

We’re told food will be distributed while supplies last and that the giveaway will operate on a first-come, first-served basis.
