Submitted by ckdcaudill on Wed, 10/01/2014 - 13:28

CAP’s Grateful Bread Food Pantry hosted its third annual Hunger Awareness March on September 4th in downtown Mt. Vernon, KY. This year, 183 caring individuals volunteered to “stand up to hunger” and 417 pounds of food were donated to the pantry!

The 2-mile walk was a demonstration of people from around Kentucky coming together for a common goal: to increase awareness about hunger locally and worldwide. This year, that group included representatives from God’s Food Bank Pantry and Wal-Mart. The mayor of Mt. Vernon also attended the Hunger Awareness March, as did the leadership club for Rockcastle Middle and High School.

The Grateful Bread Food Pantry, located in Rockcastle County, Kentucky, currently serves 70% of the people living below the poverty level there. In addition, the Grateful Bread Food Pantry is able to help 800 families in need every month.
