McCreary County Book Mobile Serving Healthy Snacks & Summer Reading

This McCreary County Book Mobile is part of our Summer Feeding Program where we are delivering kids snacks with the help of a partner agency like the McCreary County Public Library.  These kids receive a book for loan and some healthy snacks!  Children can participate in the Summer Reading Program on the Bookmobile.  The snacks are provided by God's Pantry Food Bank.

Come in, Cool off, and Give Back!

“What did you do over summer vacation?” We want our children to provide a meaningful answer to this popular question. Add a volunteer experience to your family summer fun!

We received 48 pallets of watermelons!


On the morning of Thursday July 17 we received 48 pallets of watermelons!  These watermelons will immediately go into our inventory and be made available to our 300 member agency network in our 50 county service area, FREE OF CHARGE!  Delicious, healthy summer food!  Fresh produce accounts for approximately 1/3rd of our total distribution and watermelons are a great item in the summer months!
