ABOUT US

Feeding Kentucky’s seven member food banks serve all 120 Kentucky counties in partnership with a network of over 800 local food pantries and shelters. Last year, our members distributed 76.6 million pounds of food and grocery products — enough for 64 million meals for our struggling neighbors. We reach an estimated 1 in 7 of all Kentuckians each year.

Our strategies to fight hunger include the following.

  • Increase the quality, variety and nutritional value of food available to feed hungry people in Kentucky.
  • Mobilize the public to join the fight to end hunger by increasing awareness of the causes and solutions to hunger.
  • Advocate for food security through sound public policy and legislative solutions to hunger.
  • Strengthen the coordinated hunger relief response to disasters.
  • Build alliances and partnerships that impact hunger relief in Kentucky.

We are a Partner State Association of Feeding Americathe nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
