Be a part of the solution to the hunger epidemic in our community!
1 in 6 in our area is hungry including 1 in 4 children. Clearly, the need in our area is very great, and we hope to be a help.
The Facing Hunger Foodbank is at the top of the food chain when you think of food donation and distribution. The Facing Hunger Foodank here in Huntington services 17 counties: 12 in WV, 4 in KY and 1 in OH. Four of these counties are considered among the poorest counties in the country (WV's McDowell and Mingo and KY's Lawrence and Martin). The food bank distributes food to over 220 smaller agencies such as food pantries and food kitchens.
Soup is one of the most used items at the food bank and for that reason we always hope to collect a LOT of soup for them in January, which is National Soup Month. Our drive ran the whole of the month of January, and our goal was 70,000 cans.
The total number of cans collected during the January 2017 Soup Drive was 126,863! Thank you to all who donated!
