A new study shows that more than 17 percent of Kentuckians are "food insecure," which means they don't know where their next meal will come from.
That percentage is even higher in eastern Kentucky and many organizations are working to change that.
Workers at God's Pantry Food Bank in Prestonsburg have been providing low-income families with food for years.
In any given week, emergency food providers across central and eastern Kentucky provide food and meals to more than 15,000 clients.
Volunteers say they enjoy their job because it provides them with a chance to give back to their state and their counties one meal at a time.
