God’s Food Pantry

A band of local partners are coming together for what they call a community initiative.“We’re trying to bring food back into the pantries for the holiday season and get them restocked,” Kentucky Power External Affairs Manager Bob Shurtleff said. “And we know they’ve been hit very, very hard through the pandemic and this is an opportunity for us to come together.”Kentucky Power and God’s Pantry Food Bank announced this year’s “Power Up the Pantry” event. Organizers say there are 16.5 percent of folks who live in Central and Eastern Kentucky who are food insecure. That’s one of the highest food insecurity rates in the nation,” God’s Pantry Food Bank Chief Executive Officer Michael Halligan said.
