The director of a Kentucky food bank told members of the Bowling Green Noon Rotary Club on May 22 not to assume they know what a hungry person looks like. 

Two new reports on hunger among older Americans show Kentucky has the nation’s highest rate of food insecurity for those who are in their 50s, and it’s also a major issue for Kentuckians over 60. In the Green River region alone, more than 300 elders are on a waiting list for a daily hot meal.

A report from the National Transportation Safety Board about the crash of a small plane in Henderson, Kentucky shows the pilot was not supposed to be carrying passengers.

The Map the Meal Gap 2019 report by Feeding America shows that Kentucky has more than 650,000 residents who are food insecure.

A food pantry in Bardstown is helping to close that meal gap for 700 local families who choose their own groceries.               

On a recent Tuesday morning, Bread for Life Community Food Pantry volunteer Don Bresnahan walked with a client along the produce aisle.

“Want some broccoli?” asked Bresnahan.
