Build-A-Bridge Food Drive


The Build-A-Bridge Food Drive is a year-round food drive which benefits the BackPack Program. Every two months a different BackPack specific food is collected, see list below. The food drive helps feed children throughout the school year who are at-risk of being hungry on the weekends when school meals are unavailable and family financial resources are scarce.

The Build-A-Bridge food drive was designed to help defer some of the costs of this program. There are approximately 5,500 children enrolled in the program annually in 35 Kentucky counties.
