HELPING HANDS FOOD PANTRY - RETURNING SOON! “Although we’re still working out the details, it will be a little different. You won’t be able to ‘shop’ for food. You will need to make a reservation for a food box, and you’ll drive by at a given time and date to pick up your box,” noted Center Director, Marchele Jenkins. This drive-by service will most likely be once a month.
Part of God's Pantry in Lexington, KY, the Helping Hands Food Pantry accepts donations from B's Bakery, Big Lots, Kroger, Little Casear's Pizza, Panera, Papa John's Pizza, Poppy's Bakery, Starbucks and Walmart. In FY 2020 over 4800 participants received food through the Helping Hands Food Pantry. In addition, last year the Capital City Activity Center outreach program helped over 120 senior citizen families each month.
