Hunger is a fact of life everywhere and affects people in every county in Kentucky. The organization GleanKY (gleanky.org) is working hard to make a difference in the underserved and food-insecure populations in our state. Kentucky Bank and Glean KY have combined efforts to help make a difference in assisting those individuals in Central Kentucky.
GleanKY and Kentucky Bank have similar service areas in Central Kentucky. Glean distributes food to many agencies that provide food through more than 80 partner recipients, including backpack programs, YMCA, HOPE shelters, schools, and church outreach programs. By gleaning (gathering) excess produce from farms, orchards, grocery stores, farmers markets, and home gardens, GleanKY reduces local food waste and provides fresh, quality fruits and vegetable to supporting organizations. It serves as a vital link between local sources of food and dozens of feeding programs.
Rod Brotherton, Vice President of Wealth Management and Trust Services at Kentucky Bank, became aware of GleanKY while working as a cook for the “Just Lunch” free meal program at First Presbyterian Church. Rod, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and former Marine Corps Officer who grew up in Richmond, believes giving back and helping fellow citizens in need is what we all should do. Brotherton said, “This isn’t the exclusive role of government, but rather our duty to each other as human beings.” There is an old saying that goes, “Life is short and we have too little time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us. So, be swift to love, and make haste to be kind.” #bekind#give#donate#feedthehungry#foodinsecure#foodinsecurity#helpyourneighbor#dogood
Activated Oxygen is also known as ozone or O3 – a three atom oxygen molecule with powerful oxidizing properties. The extra atom of oxygen hunts for bacteria, pollutants, viruses, and odors that seek to destroy our food.

As a mom of three children, this is close to my heart.
Many children unfortunately do not have the means to the nutrition they need. I would like to help as much as possible.
For every bag purchased; I will purchase one as well. Lets all help these children the best that we can.
PLACING Nourish the children orders as they come in!! Last month there were a couple orders. Let’s make this month even better!! #donate#helpthechildren#feedthehungry#vitameal

❣️❣️ CARRISSA ❣️❣️ Please sponsor a homeless animal. Without your support they will perish. It's true! They do not have jobs , cannot drive to the store. As a matter of fact they cannot drive at all.They can't cut coupons and they can't open cans (they're nails get in the way). What do say to buying them a meal or two ? Before you answer that, close your eyes and imagine yourself eating and they are sitting across from you starving. Would you feed them then ?
When one of your friends moves away....You MUST make them cake. Our buddy Johnny began the first ever school food truck in Kalispell Montana for the No Kid Hungry program. He is moving on to central California this fall to continue feeding children.. until no child is left hungry... i can safely say, he will be missed by many! read some of his story here https://mt.nokidhungry.org/content/making-difference-kalispell
Some of the more recent harvests from our community garden... Produce from our garden is used by residents of Madonna House & St. Elizabeth Lodge, utlized in our hot lunch program, & given away in our food pantry! #feedthehungry
People suffering from food insecurity, especially children, are often forced to succumb to a scarce diet of unhealthy foods with little to no nutrition value. With our help, we can supply them with the nutrients they need in a healthier diet! Link in bio! 🥦
It’s unfortunate that some people never go a day in their life volunteering at a food bank. This simple act of kindness can open so much awareness into your daily life on how others live, what is important verse not important, and how to give more so you can appreciate all that you have. Click the link in bio to read how volunteering at a food bank could change your outlook on food waste.
Serving in my #BlackJesusTee .
If you are interested in volunteering we serve at 2 locations every Friday, Lake Ella and then we travel over to Georgia Street and serve as well. There is a need and we need all the help and the donations that we can get.

I’m suppose to be “house sitting” my dads cat. So after night shift I pull up and spot a kitten across the street from a distance. I always keep cat food in my car, and fed this baby. He/she was a feral cat, meaning does not have human contact... but that doesn’t stop when feeding the hungry. ❤️ #catlover#feralcat#feedthehungry
Major #fridgegoal vibes! 🤩It’s hard to resist today’s plethora of fresh produce as we’re wandering our local markets, so it’s not hard believe that over half of the world’s food waste happens at home. Link in bio for simple tips on tackling food waste in our own homes! 💫#fightfoodwaste#fighthunger 🙏🏻

#Repost from @mailcyntie with @regram.app ... We get involved in charity, not because all our personal issues are solved or non-existent, but because we know in our way, however little, we can be part of the solution.
Please help us feed 1,000 hungry families for one week this September by giving towards it, by telling someone else about it, by sharing on social media about it and by coming out with us on that day.
