Forcht Bank will host a “Stick a Forcht in Hunger” food drive beginning November 7, 2016.

The general public is encouraged to drop off canned or non-perishable food items at any of Forcht Bank’s 29 locations throughout central, northern, and southern Kentucky between November 7 and December 20, 2016. All food will then be collected and delivered to local food pantries that serve Kentucky families in need beginning December 21.

“Making sure no one goes hungry, especially during the Christmas season, is something we care deeply about. In addition to collecting food items at the bank, we will donate $12,000 to buy additional food items in the counties we serve,” said Forcht Bank President Tucker Ballinger.

Forcht Bank is a Kentucky-owned community bank with approximately $1 billion in assets and 29 banking centers in 12 counties - Fayette, Jefferson, Boone, Grant, Madison, Taylor, Pulaski, Laurel, Whitley, Knox, McCreary and Green. www.forchtbank.com
