KAFB is a 501(c)3 charitable organization working to end hunger in Kentucky. Our mission is to increase the capacity of Kentucky’s Feeding America food banks to end hunger through advocacy, increased public awareness and resource development.
KAFB’s seven member food banks serve all 120 Kentucky counties in partnership with a network of over 800 local food pantries and shelters. Last year our members distributed 75.8 million pounds of food and grocery products — enough for 63,000,000 meals for our struggling neighbors. We reach an estimated 1 in 7 of all Kentuckians each year.
We are a Partner State Association of Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. We were awarded the Nonprofit VOICE award in 2014, 2015 and 2018 by the Kentucky Nonprofit Network for our advocacy work. The Kentucky Department of Agriculture named us a Kentucky Proud Partner in Excellence in 2012.
