Another Summer Meals and Snacks Program is in the books! God’s Pantry Food Bank partners with community-based sites around our service area to provide free meals and snacks to kids each summer.
This year, we had a record 27 site partners representing nine different counties in central and eastern Kentucky. With the help of these partners, we served over 9,000 meals and over 40,000 snacks! GPFB staff provides training, helps with menu planning, orders food, sets up a delivery schedule, and visits each site. This summer, we were even invited to be guest chefs, and of course we accepted this offer!
We work closely with the Kentucky Association of Food Banks No Kid Hungry Kentucky campaign to ensure that other counties in our service area have sponsors for the program, such as a local school system or non-profit organization.
We can’t take all the credit for these amazing numbers! We couldn’t do it without our summer 2017 site partners!
