Food distribution in the region
River Cities Harvest secures and distributes more than 680,000 pounds of food each year to its 46 partner agencies feeding the hungry in Boyd, Greenup and Lawrence counties in Kentucky and Lawrence County in Ohio.
By accessing supplemental food from River Cities Harvest foodbank rather than purchasing from commercial outlets, each of these partner agencies has expanded resources to advance their own missions.
RCH has successful partnerships with retail grocers, restaurants, civic organizations, local farmers, private donors, food manufactures and processors that provide us with access to thousands of pounds of food annually. The organization is an affiliate of the Facing Hunger Food Bank in Huntington, WV, and Feeding America — the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity.
