Volunteers of the Month --- January

 

EC 3

 

 

 

Congratulations to our January Volunteers of the Month, EC3 and the Advanced Manufacturing Class! Students at EC3 first got involved with FAKH last fall when Mr. Stuecker’s Advanced Manufacturing class completed a $100 Solution project for us. Since then, numerous students and staff members have donated over 600 volunteer hours. They have also completed 2 more $100 Solution projects.

 

 

Thank you all for your dedication to Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland and all that you do in supporting hunger-relief efforts!

 

Volunteers Donate Nearly 18,000hrs in 2015!

 

Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland (FAKH) would like to say THANK YOU for all the hard work and dedication that our wonderful volunteers showed us in 2015.

Our Food Bank is based out of Elizabethtown, Kentucky but we provide assistance to approximately 175,000 people each year through our feeding network in 42 central, south central, and western Kentucky counties. These individuals include children, families, and senior citizens that are supported through the various programs we provide, including our BackPack, Senior Box, and Food Pantry Programs.

None of this would be possible without the support and partnership we receive from all of our volunteers, including individuals and groups from our entire service area who have joined us at our Volunteer Center in Elizabethtown. Without YOU, we would not be able to accomplish all the great things that we do. Below are some numbers that truly show just how much of an impact you made in 2015!

  • 3,911 volunteers worked a total of 17,852.25 hours, the equivalent of 8.5 full time employees
  • Over 220,000 BackPack Bags packed and distributed in 35 of the counties we serve
  • Over 67,000 Senior Food Boxes filled and distributed in the 42 counties we serve
  • 11,660,000 meals distributed

Again, THANK YOU! We truly appreciate all that you do for our organization.

Many Thanks and Happy New Year,

FAKH Receives Support from the TVA

 

Map the Meal Gap, an annual report on hunger indicates that one in four children in our area lack ongoing access to sufficient food, and children in rural communities are the most likely to be food insecure. The Tennessee Valley Authority’s partnership with Feeding America, Kentucky's Heartland increases access to nutritious foods through: Tennessee Rural Mobile Pantry initiative.

This TVA/FAKH program increases access to nutritious foods for food insecure individuals located in rural Tennessee Valley region communities, including several counties served by FAKH. Funding is divided among seven Feeding America member food banks, like ours, that are located across the valley, via mobile food trucks in both densely populated and rural areas. Monies go directly toward the purchase and provision of nutritious foods, program capacity building efforts and corresponding educational initiatives.

Thank you TVA for your support in helping “Serve the Valley”.
