Program areas at God's Pantry Food Bank

God's Pantry Food Bank is the largest Food Bank in Kentucky and includes one-third of the state geographically and by population within its service area. Its objective is to reach everyone at risk of hunger in the 50 central and eastern Kentucky counties it serves. To reach the 250,000 Food insecure kentuckians within its service area, the Food Bank distributes more than 41 million pounds of Food annually through 400 nonprofit Food pantries and meal programs that provide groceries or meals at no cost to hungry children, seniors, and families. The Food Bank is a feeding america affiliate. Gpfb is not a religious organization and does not give preference or refuse service to any client or partner agency based on ethnicity, gender, religion, or other defining characteristic.
Nearly 20% of all children living in the 50 counties served by God's Pantry Food Bank experience Food insecurity. Kids and teens who don't get enough to eat live at a disadvantage. When hungry, children are more likely to suffer from chronic health conditions or have problems in school and social situations. God's Pantry Food Bank operates the following programs to alleviate childhood hunger so learning and growing are easier for all of Kentucky's kids and teens: backpack, kids cafe, school Pantry, summer feeding.
The objective of God's Pantry Food Bank is to reach anyone who is hungry in the 50 counties it serves, but some populations require specific strategies to be successful. Senior citizens are at higher risk for Food insecurity due to limited incomes and increased health challenges. In partnership with the Kentucky department of agriculture, gpfb directly provides Food to 13,000 senior citizens each month through the commodity supplemental Food program. The program provides a selection of healthy basic staples for seniors at 91 locations in 50 counties. Once enrolled, clients receive a selection of nutritious foods at the same site, day, and time monthly.
