Needs


Dear Grace Now Supporters:

Grace Now is requesting immediate support to feed an unprecedented and growing number of Madison County residents living in poverty. The waning economy and 98% increase in unemployment (from Mar. ’08 to Aug. ’10 as reported by The State of Kentucky Employment Development Department) in Madison County has created an overall increase in the demand for our services. The rapidly changing economy has put significant additional pressure on Grace Now’s already cost effective and tight operating budget.

Grace Now’s network of feeding agencies report that new clients are predominately children, the working poor, and the recently unemployed. Our primary goal is to prevent and alleviate the damage persistent hunger inflicts. With your support our supplemental feeding programs help a child’s capacity to learn and perform in school, advances healthy aging and facilitates independent living for seniors, and lessens the daily burden of the working poor to choose between paying for food and other necessities such as utilities, housing or medical care.

Based on a stringent service and financial review we are anticipating a substantial increase in operating expenses to meet the emergency service assistance needs for the current fiscal year. Any funding you provide will go toward obtaining, storing, and transferring large donations of highly nutritious food to emergency and non-emergency food programs. When necessary, Grace Now will use the funds to purchase foods to ensure that recipients are provided highly nutritious food versus empty calorie food.
