Residents Plan To Go Without Solid Food

Some people in eastern Kentucky will be fasting Tuesday to bring attention to those who go hungry right here in the mountains.

To observe National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week, workers at the Bell-Whitley Community Action Agency will not be eating solid food from sunrise to sunset Tuesday, and are encouraging others to join them.

They also say you should donate what you would've had to eat.

You can donate money or canned goods for “Fasting for Food” to the Bell Whitley Community Action Agency.

Mail checks for “Fasting for Food” to Bell-Whitley CAA, Inc., PO Box 159, Pineville, Kentucky 40977.

Any money will be used to buy additional canned goods for area families.

For more information on getting involved or donating to “Fasting for Food” you can call the Bell Whitley Community Action Agency at (606) 337-3044.
