Two Kentucky Food Banks Receive Gift That Give More Grants

Seattle, WA, March 25, 2012 --( announced more than $12,000 in grants going to Kentucky food banks dealing with the aftermath of the February and March tornado strikes in that region. These grants were made possible by the “2012 Tornado Strikes - Help Now” Gift That Gives More [tm] featured at The Hunger Site and other GreaterGood Network websites.

Both God’s Pantry Food Bank in eastern Kentucky and Dare To Care Food Bank, headquartered in Louisville, serve counties hit by tornadoes.

God’s Pantry staff is currently helping to rebuild pantries in Magoffin County and Morgan County. Previously, in Magoffin, the country food bank was located in St. Luke Catholic Church, which was destroyed by a tornado.

"Because phone and power lines were down, it took us a long time to connect with the priest to offer our support and inquire about their needs," said a staff member of God's Pantry Food Bank. "The loss of this pantry is significant for Magoffin County as the need before the tornadoes was already so great."

Both organizations are members of Feeding America’s national network of food banks. Visitors to The Hunger Site can donate daily to Feeding America for free by clicking the yellow button on the homepage.
