“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.”
GO Pantry Inclement Weather Policy:
Volunteer shifts will follow Boone County School’s Inclement Weather days. If Boone County Schools are closed, all volunteer shifts will be cancelled.
We need your help. Here’s why. Since school started in September, we have seen a significant increase in the number of requests for emergency food support. Government assistance programs available during COVID has stopped. SNAP benefits recently decreased support. Decreasing resources coupled with increasing grocery prices and inflationary pressure have put more families in crisis.
GO Pantry is non-profit community outreach providing food for hungry kids in NKY on days schools are not open.
Since 2012 GO Pantry has been feeding local kids in need. There are kids in every school who rely on the Free & Reduced Lunch Program for meals during the school year. When school is out, many children lose their primary food source.
The requests for help from GO Pantry have jumped 30%. A staggering 1,200 kids in over 80 schools across 11 districts in 6 counties are receiving weekly food support from GO Pantry.
No child should go hungry. Please consider joining us with your support. Together we can make make a difference for the kids who need us.
Spring is in the air..
Which means it’s time to start preparing for Spring Break! Many children lose their primary food source when school is not in session. GO Pantry supplements meals to those children in our community on weekends and long breaks away from school with GO Bags and GO Boxes.
We are currently collecting much-needed food items to fill GO Boxes for Spring Break. YOU CAN HELP by purchasing or collecting food items using our GO Box Shopping List. Please ensure that food expires after May 2024. Donations must be received by Monday, March 25, at GO Pantry or at any of our Community Drop-Off locations! Click here for more details! Thank you for your generosity!
