About NPO Showcase

NPO Showcase highlights nonprofit and government organizations that improve the quality of life in our city and throughout our community. The program is a feature of GRTV and the Community Media Center, with producer and host Julie Way. You can catch it on GRTV on Saturdays at 8 AM and 6 PM and can view past episodes on the Grand Rapids Community Media Center website. If your nonprofit would like to be interviewed on NPO Showcase, please contact Julie Way.

This segment of NPO Showcase features FoodCircles, an organization that is helping to feed hungry kids in our community through something many people are already doing on a regular basis - dining out.

Jonathan Kumar, Managing Director, and Adam Salois, Lead Designer, join us in studio to discuss how FoodCircles got started and how the Buy One Feed One model works. Through the website or the smartphone app (available through Google Play and iTunes), you purchase a voucher for a dish at a local restaurant for $1 or a donation amount of your choice, redeem the voucher while dining out, and 100% of your donation goes to an organization like Feeding America West Michigan or Kids Food Basket to help feed kids in our community. Learn more about FoodCircles at their website.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
