How We Operate

Feeding America, Kentucky's Heartland (FAKH) operates as a central clearing-house for collecting and distributing food and grocery products that might otherwise be wasted. The food bank solicits and receives excess food from the food industry such as manufacturers, grocery chains, or from individual donors. The food is edible but cannot be sold at retail outlets for various reasons: over production, mislabeling, unattractive packaging, approaching shelf-life expiration, slow turnover or damaged packaging. In addition to foods provided by donors, the food bank also distributes commodities provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
