Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland recently received a $5,000 grant from the Genentech Foundation to support our mission to serve those in need of food assistance. The Genentech Foundation was established by Genentech, a leading biotechnology company, in 2002.The $5,000 grant will be used to support the Mobile Food Pantry Program, a program that distributes Kentucky produce to those in need across 42 counties in central, south central, and western Kentucky.

This fresh Kentucky produce is acquired through the Farms to Food Banks Program, a program established by the Kentucky Association of Food Banks and funded through the Kentucky State Government. Thanks to the Farms to Food Banks Program, those in need are given better access to nutritious and wholesome foods that they might not otherwise have.  Last summer, the program was a huge success, distributing hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh produce items across our service area.  We are already looking forward to next spring/summer and another successful season for our Mobile Food Pantry Program.  

If you would like more information about this program, or would like to make a donation to help support these fresh produce distributions, please visit the "Donate Now" page on our website or contact our office at 270-735-1407.

Louisville, Ky. (November 5, 2014)— Thanks to a $5,000 grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Kentuckiana (RMHCK), Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland, will provide local school-aged children at risk of going hungry over the weekend with a bag of take-home food each Friday during the 2014 – 2015 school year.

The RMHCK grant program, funded in part by local McDonald’s® Restaurants of Kentuckiana owner/operators, awards $90,000 to local charities each year.

The generous grant will be used to provide students in Green, Marion, Meade, Nelson and Washington counties, who have been identified as food insecure, with a bag of food items each Friday throughout the school year. This stable source of food helps the children perform better as students, leading to a more successful adult life.

“As part of our mission to lend support to organizations who aid children, we are grateful to have the opportunity to help provide these local at-risk students with a reliable food source on the weekends,” said Hal Hedley, RMHCK Executive Director. “We are thrilled to be a part of this partnership to feed hungry children in Kentucky’s heartland.”

Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland, founded in 1982, is a regional Feeding America affiliated food bank located in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. The BackPack Program was implemented by the organization in 2006, serving one county and approximately 60 children. The BackPack Program now provides approximately 5,500 children in 35 counties with the basic necessity of food, which many do not have. For more information on the organization and ways to help, visit http://www.feedingamericaky.org/.
