God’s Pantry Food Bank invited members of the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department to tour the main facility Monday afternoon as part of an effort to find ways to cross-promote each agency’s services.
CEO Marian Guinn and External Relations Director Rebecca Price met with Dr. Rice Leach, Jeanette Hart, Melissa Smith, Lois Davis, Kevin Hall and Liz Pfeffer. God’s Pantry serves 50 counties in central and eastern Kentucky and distributes more than 2 million pounds of food each month. Of their clients, 43 percent of the households report at least one member with diabetes and 70 percent with high blood pressure.
