CINCINNATI (WXIX) - GO Pantry opened 10 years ago in Northern Kentucky to help just a few kids who were going hungry. It has grown to help kids in 80 schools across six counties. They got a big boost from their top sponsor today in packing their summer boxes.
Hundreds of GO Boxes are being packed up at GO Pantry in Northern Kentucky.
“We’re just so grateful for the community,” explains Executive Director Laura Dumancic, “We really are a voice for these kids and once we let you know that there is this problem out there, we know you want to help too.”
From feeding seven kids to now 1200 kids a week, the pantry has grown in both need and service.
Wednesday, St. Elizabeth Healthcare sent dozens of employees to help pack boxes of food for kids to have food over the summer break. St. Elizabeth donated enough food and money to pay for 4000 boxes which is enough food to feed kids for a week.
