Farmers wanted

5,100 people (11.5%) in Shelby County are food insecure. Many of those affected by food insecurity are senior citizens, rural residents, veterans or kids. Through our new Farmers Feeding Families program, Metro United Way in Shelby County is focusing on reducing hunger and its associated health issues in our community. We can’t do this alone and are looking for farmers and landowners to partner with us.


Farmers Feeding Families issued a request for proposal to provide funds to any non-profit organization serving Shelby County, KY with the priority to provide services where people’s most basic food needs are inadequate. The program’s goal is to ensure that individuals in Shelby County have the food they need to live healthier lives. Click the button below to submit a proposal.
