"Feed Seniors Now" campaign begins in Western Kentucky

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - The 5th annual "Feed Seniors Now" food drive kicked off on Tuesday in Owensboro.

Independence Bank, Comfort Keepers, and the Green River Area Development District are hosting the drive from now until the end of the month.

Since 2011, the food drive has provided close to 20 tons of food- providing meals to more than 1400 seniors in our area.

Vice President of Comfort Keepers, Travis Estes, says one in six seniors face hunger.

So holding this food drive is a way to give back to the community.

"We have a list of folks that are lining up that truly have a need to be served in this community," said Estes.

Nonperishable food items may be dropped off at any of the following locations:
