BackPack Brainstorm 712 6 W

KENTUCKY (7/13/17) — Ten BackPack Programs received $1,000 each in a random drawing at a recent BackPack Regional Meeting in Bowling Green.

Mackenzie Pogue accepted the money on behalf of the Muhlenberg County BackPack Program. Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland was awarded the grant from Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, Inc., to support the program which provides weekend food to school-age children who are at risk of going hungry when school meals are unavailable. There are currently over 5,000 children supported by the BackPack program in 34 of the 42 Kentucky counties served by FAKH.
