On June 26th, Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland received a $5,000 donation from The Bardstown Bourbon Company. The new bourbon company announced earlier that day that Nelson County had been chosen as the location for their distillery. Work on the distillery is set to begin this summer with a projected opening date sometime in 2016. But in an effort to show their commitment to the community that they will be joining in the coming years, they wanted to support a local non-profit. We at Feeding America, Kentucky's Heartland are honored to be the recipient of this support. This money will be used to support the non-profit’s various programs that aim to provide food to the hungry and those in need.
