Stuff Your Stocking online silent auction to fight food insecurity in Central and Eastern Kentucky


Stuff Your Stocking and support God’s Pantry Food Bank while shopping from the comfort of your home this holiday season.

The Food Bank is introducing Stuff Your Stocking, an online silent auction and Pappy Van Winkle raffle, proceeds from which will help feed those facing food insecurity in Central and Eastern Kentucky. The silent auction is open now until 9 p.m. on Dec. 15 and will have items that are sure to bring smiles to the faces of those on your list.

Auction items include an overnight stay at the Kentucky Castle, original artwork by Enrique Gonzalez, rare and hard to find bourbons such as George T. Stagg and Stagg. Jr., Kendra Scott jewelry, restaurant gift cards, a getaway to French Lick Resort, and much more.

Are you or someone you know a bourbon lover? The Pappy Van Winkle raffle is perfect for you! God’s Pantry Food Bank has a full flight of Pappy Van Winkle. The flight includes Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year, 20 Year, 15 Year, Special Reserve 12 Year, and Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year.

God’s Pantry Food Bank is selling 500 tickets for $100 each. Raffle ticket sales will close at 9 p.m. on Dec. 15 or when tickets are sold-out, whichever occurs first. They can be purchased here: godspantry.org/pappyraffle.

“Like every organization, the Food Bank had to modify how we operate in an effort to keep the community safe during COVID-19,” said Michael Halligan, CEO of God’s Pantry Food Bank. “Stuff Your Stocking is something fun we can bring to our supporters while events are on hold that also helps us raise funds to continue feeding those who find themselves struggling with food insecurity.”

With every $1 donated, God’s Pantry Food Bank can gather and distribute enough food to create eight meals. Participating and purchasing gifts from Stuff Your Stocking helps the Food Bank keep up with the rising need. For more information and to start bidding visit godspantry.org/stuffyourstocking.
