in need through a well-managed organization that can effectively do the work.
Hunger Bill of Rights
The Food Pantry for Woodford County strives to provide food for low income residents
in emergency situations through a network of food pantries across the USA and Canada.
We help clients provide nutritious meals for their families enabling them to use
precious resources for other pressing obligations such as rent, utilities, transportation,
medicine and other life necessities.
The food Pantry fills the gap in community service which no other agency addresses.
30 percent of seniors who rely on our local food pantries report that they have had
to choose between paying for food and paying for medical care. Seniors facing hunger
are already at a higher risk of developing serious health issues. Let’s save them
from having to make that choice.
