What is the Kentucky Hunger Hero? 

It is now more important than ever that we ensure none of our Kentucky neighbors go hungry. Schools and community members are working hard to ensure kids still have access to healthy meals while school is out of session; while community organizations are going the extra mile to provide meal access to our neighbors across the state of Kentucky.
The Kentucky Hunger Hero celebrates and highlights these individuals who are going above and beyond to ensure all Kentuckians get the nutritious meals they need to thrive!
