Mission Statement

In 1955, a concerned citizen named Mim Hunt began distributing food out of the basement of her home to those in need of assistance. Through the years, this small effort grew into the large-scale hunger relief organization that God’s Pantry Food Bank is today. Our mission is to reduce hunger in Kentucky through community cooperation making the best possible use of all available resources.

Last fiscal year, the food bank distributed a record 23 million pounds of food - including 6 million pounds of fresh produce - to more than 211,000 people in Central and Eastern Kentucky. We distribute this product through a network of more than 275 member agencies in 50 counties. God's Pantry Food Bank is currently engaged in the $3.8 million "Come to the Table" capital campaign to expand our organizational capacity to meet the needs of Kentucky’s hungry, today and into the future.

God’s Pantry Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger relief charity in the United States. Feeding America is working to create a hunger-free America by distributing food and grocery products to more than 210 food banks, increasing public awareness of domestic hunger, and advocating for policies that benefit food bank clients nationwide.
