November 17, 2014 (Mayfield, KY) In 2014, FNB Bank donated $4,000 to the Feeding America Program benefiting students from Mayfield and Graves County Schools. For the past four years, FNB employees from the Graves County offices elected to serve the Feeding America BackPack Program through their philanthropic fundraising efforts. Since 2011, FNB has donated over $12,000 to the Feeding America BackPack Program benefiting qualifying students from Mayfield and Graves County Schools.    

FNB employees coordinated and participated in numerous events benefiting Feeding America throughout 2014, including various jean days, Wendy’s of Mayfield chili lunch, Cookout, Spring Fling Shopping Event, GCHS student car wash and concession sales during the Graves County and Mayfield Battle of the Birds football game.

Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Their mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

The Feeding America Program is based out of the Purchase Area Development District (PADD) office and serves schools in Hickman, Fulton, Carlisle, and Graves County, with the addition of one school in McCracken County. PADD works with each school’s Family Resource/Youth Services Centers to fulfill the weekly mission of supplying food to the students. On average, the program serves over 392 students per week by providing a “BackPack” filled with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food items for the student to take home on weekends and holidays during the school year.

To support one student through the program for an entire year requires $100 to cover all of the program expenses.

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/.
