Our goal is to provide one million meals to our neighbors across FAKH’s 42-county service area by December 31. At $1 = 8 meals, $125,000 is needed to reach our goal of providing one million meals this holiday season. No one person or agency can make such a huge impact alone, but together we can achieve this goal.

On average, we provided 41,000 meals a day over the last fiscal year, making equitable access to nutritious food a reality across Kentucky’s Heartland. Your support helps our neighbors continue working to make their dreams a reality.

Come take a seat and partner with us during our Million Meals Challenge as we set the table with hope this holiday season!

Every Item of Food Counts.

At the end of the day, we can’t feed our neighbors facing hunger without the help of community members like you. 

We are happy to accept food donations from manufacturers, retailers, produce growers, distributors and community members. Want to drop off food at our Elizabethtown distribution center? View our daily hours here.
