The Story

Versailles, KY

Food Pantry for Woodford County (FPWC) was opened in 1992 to serve the food insecure residents of Woodford County, Kentucky. Run completely by volunteers, families needing emergency food assistance or who are struggling financially can visit the food pantry. Throughout the years, more programs were added as the needs of the community grew. In 2014, FPWC built a new building which allowed them to reach even more families in need.

Open two days a week, residents needing food assistance can visit the client-choice food pantry and select food items. FPWC not only provides non-perishable food items, but they also encourage healthy living by offering meats, fresh fruits, and vegetables. “We help clients provide nutritious meals for their families enabling them to use precious resources for other obligations such as rent, utilities, transportation, medicine, and other life necessities,” said Sharon Hardin, FPWC Executive Director. In 2017, the food pantry served food boxes to 1,268 families with 2,982 individuals. FPWC also hosts the Senior Commodity Food Box program which specifically focuses on helping senior citizens. The senior commodity program served 1,269 boxes.

To ensure the food pantry is always stocked and available for clients, FPWC volunteers hope to raise $10,000 through RedBasket.org to purchase meats and other nutritious food items. “Our wish is for all of our clients to receive help and become self-sufficient,” Sharon said. “We celebrate each success with our clients when their lives turn around, and they no longer need help from the food pantry.” Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and help FWPC continue meeting the needs for the food insecure in the community.
