8th Annual Feed Seniors Now Food Drive

Since its inception in 2011, this area food drive has collected nearly 40 tons of food, providing meals for over 3,000 seniors.  Collection of non-perishable items will take place from September 5th through October 11th, with delivery of groceries to take place October 22nd.

Independence Bank, Comfort Keepers, Kentucky Legend® (a division of Specialty Foods Group, LLC), Canteen and the Green River Area Development District (GRADD) are seeking to rally community support to feed low-income individuals in Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, McLean, Ohio and Webster Counties.

“Hunger in our aging community is an epidemic that we can’t overlook and need to keep top of mind,” said Kyle Aud, Independence Bank Senior Vice President of Daviess County.  “With this initiative, we hope to not only reduce the amount of hunger in the lives of our elderly, but also build awareness within our community on the vastness of the issue.”

Nonperishable food items may be dropped off at area Kroger and IGA supermarkets, as well as other locations, including Independence Bank, Comfort Keepers, GRADD and local senior centers in participating counties. Drop-Off locations are listed below.

Those wishing to make a monetary donation can mail a check to: The Independence Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 988, Owensboro, KY 42302, Attention: Feed Seniors Now. Please designate county in the memo section. One hundred percent of proceeds benefit the food drive!
