WAVE Country steps up after food pantry loses everything

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – After mold destroyed the supplies a food pantry needed to feed several families in WAVE Country, a couple organizations stepped up to the plate to help.

Suzanne Baker works for the Ministries United of South Central Louisville. On Friday she stopped by WAVE 3 News to share the story about the food pantry's misfortune on WAVE Country with Dawne Gee.

Little did she know, Dawne invited some friends to help get the food pantry back up and running.

Vice President of Mission Advancement for Kosair Charities Melissa Kratzer, came equipped with a large check for $10,000 and Kroger spokesman Tim McGurk had an envelope with $2,000 in Kroger gift cards.

"I don't know what type of words to try to describe this," Baker said. "It's a joy to share what we do with the food pantry. When we've been without, having to turn people away is the worst part of my job and this is going to allow me never to have to tell anyone no on my food pantry."
