The Kentucky Broadcasters Association and Feeding Kentucky are uniting
to combat hunger and food bank shortages in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are asking member stations to encourage their viewers and listeners to contribute monetary donations to support hunger relief efforts of the State’s food banks. Below is a link to three produced radio public service announcements, recorded by Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner, Ryan Quarles. Television stations are encouraged to air a feature on the partnership, along with adding graphics to your website and social media platforms.
“Even before the crisis, 1 in 7 Kentuckians struggled with hunger,” said Tamara Sandberg, Executive Director of Feeding Kentucky. “It has only gotten worse as Kentuckians face lost wages and missed school meals, and with seniors isolated at home and unable to access meals from their local senior center. We are grateful to Kentucky’s broadcasters for this great effort to ensure every Kentuckian has enough food to eat during these challenging times.”
