LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Tellers putting food on the table.
Fifth Third Bank donated $5,500 on Wednesday to the Open Hand Kitchen at St. Vincent de Paul on South Jackson Street.
The kitchen provides two hot meals a day to shelter guests and struggling members of the community.
The Map Meal Gap’s annual study shows 17 percent of Kentucky residents struggle with hunger.
“It’ll continue to support the food programs on campus. Food is an integral part of the safety net and corporate partners like Fifth Third really help us,” said Ed Wnorowski, St. Vincent de Paul’s executive director.
The Open Hand Kitchen says it serves about 15,000 free meals each month.
