God’s Pantry Food Bank Hosts Sharing Thanksgiving Event

Hundreds of families gathered in London this week to pick up Thanksgiving meals provided by God’s Pantry Food Bank. The Sharing Thanksgiving program distributes 1,200 Thanksgiving meal boxes to neighbors experiencing hunger throughout Clay, Jackson, Laurel, Owsley, and Rockcastle counties. In London, God Pantry’s Food Bank made 600 Thanksgiving meal boxes to help feed around 500 families. Many volunteers took part in distributing the boxes to the families in need. The Thanksgiving meal boxes contained a full-sized turkey along with eggs, potatoes, onions, butter, and everything needed for a Thanksgiving meal. The Feeding America national office estimates over 220,000 central and eastern Kentuckians are food insecure.
