BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Friday was the Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland distribution day at Lampkin Park. Families in need of food gathered there, and volunteers assisted.
Nationwide, Feeding America works with local food banks. Executive director of Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland Jamie Sizemore said the food bank here is not getting enough food into Warren County in order to meet the needs of those who are hungry.
The food bank has the food that it needs. Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland’s most pressing need in Warren County is people and agencies to help distribute that food.
“We need more partner agencies in this area to be working with us, with Feeding America’s Heartland to get more food into the hands of people who really need it,” Sizemore said.
The food bank is in need of volunteers to help with the monthly food distribution at Lampkin Park.
