Retired educators across the state are teaming up to help those struggling to put food on the table

Working together to fight hunger in Lawrence County is one way the Lawrence County Retired Teachers’ Association is making difference in their hometown. Retired educators across the state are teaming up to help those struggling to put food on the table. Taking advantage of a match grant funded by AARP-KY and KRTA, Lawrence County Retired Teachers’ Association launched its second year of efforts to alleviate hunger locally.

The Lawrence County Retired Teachers’ Association is working to reduce the risk of hunger by donating to the local Louisa food bank. In Kentucky, hunger threatens 13.4% of its citizens. Building on the success of their 2015 food drives, KRTA Units across the state are taking action to help change this with the “Yes, We Can Feed Kentucky” food drives in 2017.

“We know hunger is not part of the American dream, we know there are Kentuckians going to bed hungry and we want to do something about it.  We’re inviting other local groups to join with us and help end hunger right here in Lawrence County” says Sally Chapman, committee chair. “It’s important to take action locally and meet local needs in Lawrence County and I know working together we can make a difference.”

Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus founded the National Retired Teachers’ Association in 1948 and ten years later, founded AARP with a vision of service to others. Year two of “Yes, We Can Feed Kentucky” continues that mission of service and the spirit of service to give back.
