NEW FEEDING AMERICA REPORT REVEALS

TRUTH ABOUT HUNGER IN CENTRAL, SOUTH CENTRAL AND WESTERN KENTUCKY

 

Largest, Most Comprehensive Analysis of Charitable Food Assistance in America Reports nearly 174,500 Served by Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland Food Bank Annually

 

Elizabethtown, KY – September 8, 2014 – A new Hunger In America study, conducted by Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland (FAKH) Food Bank and Feeding America (national), shows that 1 in 6 people in the 42 central, south central and western Kentucky counties served by FAKH turn to food pantries and meal service programs to help feed themselves and their families. That results in an estimated 174,500 people each year, including 43,625 children and 47,115 seniors.

Thisnational study documents household demographics and offers a snapshot of the people served by Feeding America, their circumstances, their challenges, and the choices they are often forced to make. Nationally, Hunger in America 2014 found that 1 in 7, or more than 46.5 million, people turn to the network of Feeding America agencies and programs every year.

“The Hunger in America 2014 findings demonstrate theurgent need for all of us to address hunger in our communities,” said Bob Aiken, CEO of Feeding America. “This data provides a factual basis for decisions about how we as a nation approach hunger relief and protect our most vulnerable citizens.”

FAKH has been a member of the Feeding America network since 1982 and has continued to participate in the Hunger in America study that occurs every four years. The Hunger in America 2014 local findings show that 16,700 people are served each week through FAKH programs and services.

“The results of this study show us that many Kentuckians, some of which you may recognize, struggle with hunger,” said Gary Miles, FAKH Executive Director. “From time to time, many of our neighbors find themselves having to turn to emergency food assistance to meet their basic food needs”. Too often, our clients also have to make difficult trade-offs to get enough food for their families. As we recognize Hunger Action Month in September, it is important to remember the critical work FAKH does every day in partnership with 220 feeding programs in 42 Kentucky counties (including yours), and how much more we can do together to solve hunger in communities.”
