Food pantries in Kenton County.

Kenton County is supported by several food pantries. The centers, most of which were created as non-profit organizations, offer programs that are focused on hunger prevention. They also run other services, such as a low cost Meals on Wheel service for senior citizens or offer holiday food baskets in the greater Covington Kentucky area.

The contents of a box of food may vary based on need and donation levels. There may be everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to non-perishable groceries or items such as baby formula. Some of the pantries may also assist with clothing or items such as diapers. There are also soup kitchens located across Kenton County that offer Thanksgiving or Christmas meals. So the exact programs available at each distribution center vary and can even change over time.
