Perdue Farms is delivering $150,000 and 160,000 servings of chicken products to Kentucky residents impacted by the weekend tornado outbreak. The funds are going to the United Way of Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund and the meals are going to Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland. Perdue’s response is made possible through the company’s “Delivering Hope To Our Neighbors” initiative focused in part on disaster relief, and improving quality of life and building stronger communities. Kevin Middletown, president of United Way of Kentucky, says, “This will mean so much to our neighbors who lost everything over the weekend.” Meanwhile, the Kentucky Farm Bureau has launched its KFB for Kentucky Relief Fund to aid the families and communities affected by the recent tornado outbreak. And the Kentucky Department of Agriculture has a resource webpage for impacted farmers. The page includes links to donation funds as well. You can find the resource page at kyagr.com/tornado/.
