FNB DONATES TO THE FEEDING AMERICA BACKPACK PROGRAM FOR MAYFIELD & GRAVES COUNTY SCHOOLS


In 2013, FNB Bank donated $3,000 to the Feeding America Program benefiting students from Mayfield and Graves County Schools.  For the past three years, FNB employees from the Graves County offices elected to serve the Feeding America BackPack Program through their philanthropic fundraising efforts.   

FNB employees coordinated and participated in numerous events benefiting Feeding America throughout 2013, including various jean days, chili lunch, bake sale, Spring Fling Shopping Event, GCHS student car wash and concession sales during the Graves County and Mayfield football game.  

Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity.  Their mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

The Feeding America Program is based out of the Purchase Area Development District (PADD) office and serves schools in Hickman, Fulton, Carlisle, and Graves County, with the addition of one school in McCracken County.  PADD works with each school’s Family Resource/Youth Services Centers to fulfill the weekly mission of supplying food to the students.  On average, the program serves over 420 students per week by providing a “BackPack” filled with nutritious and easy-to-prepare food items for the student to take home on weekends and holidays during the school year.  

To support one student through the program for an entire year requires $100 to cover all of the program expenses.  To learn more about the Feeding America Program, please contact Clay Black, Commodities and Food Bank Coordinator with the PADD office at 270-251-6141or by e-mail at clay.black@purchaseadd.org
