Kentucky Pantries Restocked

Governor Steve Beshear has launched a statewide outreach campaign to restock Kentucky Pantries.

Volunteers were on hand outside Rupp Arena to encourage people attending the basketball game, to bring food with them for people in need.

The governor says with the tough economic times the nation has been experiencing, coupled with the recent winter storm, Kentuckians are struggling each day to keep food on the table for their families.

Officials estimate that more than 6-thousand Kentuckians are currently displaced from their homes because of the winter storm.
