Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland
Celebrates Hunger Action Month in September
Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland, will be celebrating Hunger Action Month throughout the month of September, 2013, with a number of activities.
September 12th, from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, are this year’s HAHAs – Hunger Awareness Hours of Action. Hunger is NO laughing matter, but that doesn’t mean you cannot stop by to share some HAHAs with us! Local and State politicians have been invited to join us for HAHAs, too, so this is your chance to go shoulder-to-shoulder with your representatives in fighting hunger in Kentucky. Since space is limited during HAHAs, reservations are required, so call us at 270-735-1407 or email Amber at alyvers @ feedingamericaky.org to reserve your HAHA spot.
Lots of notable Kentuckians have signed up for a HAHA or two: Radio personality, Greg Milby, from WQXE; Mayor Edna Berger of Elizabethtown; Elizabethtown Council Members Marty Fulkerson and Tony Bishop; Hardin County Magistrates Bill Wiseman and E. G. Thompson; and State Representative Wilson Stone, and State Senator Dennis Parrett.
You can join us, too, to help us pack boxes of food for hungry senior citizens, and BackPacksTM for hungry school kids. Feeding America BackPacks™ are sacks filled with 10-15 kid-friendly, easy-to-prepare, single serving foods which are distributed to nearly 5,000 hungry school kids each week at more than 200 schools in FAKH’s 42-county service region. Our Senior Boxes also go out to senior centers in each of our counties, helping more than 5,000 low-income people over age 60 stretch their food budgets.
To join in the fun and reserve your very own HAHA, call us at 270-735-1407 or email alyvers @ feedingamericaky.org.
Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland feeds more than 125,500 hungry people each year through distribution to more than 220 food pantries in 42 Kentucky counties. FAKH’s main office and warehouses are located on Peterson Drive in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.
