Gary Smith and Joe Keys of Mariner Finance visited God’s Pantry Food Bank in Lexington, KY to deliver a $1,500 donation on April 20, 2018. In 1955, community activist Mim Hunt began distributing food out of her basement to those in need, and throughout the years her small effort grew into the large-scale hunger relief organization that God’s Pantry Food Bank is today. God’s Pantry Food Bank is a member of the 200+ food banks that make up Feeding America. They are also a member of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks working with other Kentucky Food Banks to maximize effectiveness throughout the state of Kentucky. With every $1 provided, God’s Pantry Food Bank can gather and distribute enough food to create 8 meals. Mariner’s gift through Jeffie’s Choice is already at work providing 12,000 meals to hungry children, seniors and families in 50 Central and Eastern counties.
