God’s Pantry Food Bank has received more than four tons of donated food from visitors to the Ink & Blood exhibit. Ink & Blood coordinators offered visitors to the exhibit from July 22 through August 8 half off the price of admission if they brought in a food donation for God’s Pantry.
“We are so grateful to Ink & Blood and to the folks who have supported the exhibit and God’s Pantry through their donations of food,” said Marian Blanchard, executive director of God’s Pantry Food Bank. “We have collected enough food through these donations to pack 91 shopping carts full of food! During the summer our food drives are down so this has given us a tremendous boost to our supply for our emergency food box program.”
Craig Salazar, Chief Operating Officer of Ink & Blood: Dead Sea Scrolls to the English Bible stated, “We are so happy we could work with God’s Pantry and thrilled that we were able to collect nearly five tons of food for local distribution. What better way to use Ink & Blood’s ancient Biblical artifacts than to collect food for Kentuckians in need. I encourage other companies to come forward to continue the fight against hunger with God’s Pantry.”
