Hunger doesn't take a summer vacation and our dedicated volunteers were busy packaging KAH meals during the month of July. 181 volunteers joined us at the KAH Packaging Center and produced 34,344 vitamin-fortified meals. For the second straight year, more than 100 Walgreens employees and their families took action to end hunger by packaging more than 28,000 meals. Volunteers from Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church, Hearts and Hands, and the Resurrection Lutheran Church VBS also participated in July events.
775 volunteers helped produce more than 160,000 nutrient-rich meals during the month of June. Participating groups included: Yum! Brands Legal Department, Barrett Traditional Middle School Beta Club, Manual High School Class of 2014, KY FFA State Convention, First Baptist Church-Madisonville, KY, Simpsonville Christian Church, First Baptist Church-Grayson, KY.
On June 28, Grayson, KY volunteers set a new single-day packaging record by assembling 121,392 meals.

With the help of 3,496 volunteers, KAH-Louisville has packaged 443,676 meals during the first half of 2014.
