KFC supports families in West Louisville through #FeedtheWest grocery initiative
Category: Feeding Our Communities
(June 18, 2020) KFC corporate employees recently supported the local Black community in their hometown by participating in the#FeedTheWest grocery initiative in West Louisville, an area of town that serves as a hub of activity for social justice reform. The company partnered with local community organization Change Today, Change Tomorrow, whose mission is to provide access to resources, education, and community engagement to the Black community. Their #FeedTheWest grocery initiative aims to provide a reliable source of food and hygiene items for more than 400 families in Louisville's West End.
KFC corporate employees based in Louisville, donated, helped sort, pack, and deliver over 2,000 toiletry items ranging from baby diapers and formula, to body wash, and toothbrushes to families in need. They also prepared and delivered 400 KFC bucket meals to #FeedTheWest community sites across Louisville, including a local Boys and Girls Club, Neighborhood Mart, and more. This experience was particularly special for some of our KFC corporate employees,
"It was awesome to be back at my Boys and Girls Club in Parkland to help feed the community that I grew up in. The toiletries are a huge need, and people were lined up all afternoon waiting on our hot KFC chicken. I think we made a huge impact and hope we will continue to help the areas that are faced with such social justice issues; it means a lot to our community."
