Feeding America Kentucky’s Heartland is set to host a week-long fundraiser for children on the BackPack program next week. The backpack program is designed to help food insecure children receive easy to prepare food items each Friday that school is in session.
Each participating county in the fundraiser will organize an online donation site that directly supports their specific program. Feeding America Kentucky’s Heartland as a whole will host a Greatest Needs fundraiser that will go to the county that needs the greatest funding.
Jack Henry and Associates, Kroger, and Zero Waste Foundation have also stated that they will donate to the cause.
The fundraiser starts Monday and goes until Friday next week. To find out where to donate visit FeedingAmericaKY.org
