1-in-6 Warren County children face food insecurity, Chick-fil-A and Feeding America steps up to provide support
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Thursday afternoon, 250 Bowling Green families in need walked home with boxes of fresh Chick-fil-A. Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland partnered with Chick-fil-A to distribute food in honor of the new restaurant branch opening.
Through the partnership, FAKH has received a $25,000 grant from Chick-fil-A to support additional food resources for families in Bowling Green. Chick-fil-A makes it a mission to support feeding programs nationwide each time a new franchise opens its doors.
Feeding America tells us with 1-in-6 Warren County children facing food insecurity, this food distribution at the Boys and Girls Club of Bowling Green couldn’t be any more of a blessing.
FAKH Marketing & Communications Manager, Kaitlyn Jackson said, “Luckily today and through some other partnerships, we’re able to feed families. So, getting to make an impact in other kids’ lives is tremendous, is tremendous to see and to be able to do.”
The giving doesn’t stop here. Two local churches’ food pantries will distribute an additional 390 boxes of this food to local families through the rest of March.
