God’s Pantry Food Bank receives $8,000 grant from Darden Foundation to support hunger relief efforts

God’s Pantry Food Bank announced Tuesday an $8,000 grant from The Darden Foundation to help provide hunger relief to families across Central and Eastern Kentucky. The funds will be used to support general operations of the Food Bank.

“Since 2013 the Darden Foundation has provided more than $35,000 of support,” said Michael Halligan, CEO for God’s Pantry Food Bank. “In addition to creating memorable experiences, Darden Restaurants helps ensure nutritious food reaches the tables of those who are uncertain about their next meal. They bring hope to those less fortunate.”

God’s Pantry Food Bank, a member of the Feeding America network, is one of 193 food banks to receive this funding from The Darden Foundation. This year’s gift is expected to help The Food Bank gather and distribute enough food for 64,000 meals through its network of nonprofits that operate food pantries and meal programs.

The Darden Foundation is committed to supporting families facing food insecurity in communities across the United States. Their commitment to helping is demonstrated through their partnership with Feeding America and their network of 200 food banks across the nation.

Feeding America has worked alongside The Darden Foundation for seven years in the fight to end hunger. Thanks to their ongoing support, the Feeding America network has been able to help provide even more meals to families in need.
