LEX 18 Digital: 24/7 Food Pantry Opens In Whitley County

Posted: Updated:

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky., (LEX 18) -- A church in Williamsburg is now offering help to the community any time of the day or night. 

First Baptist Church recently opened its 365 Food Pantry. A fully stocked pantry with canned food, snacks, blankets and other essential items. 

The pantry, located outside the church, is never closed, said Kim Williams, a member of the church. 

"It's of no cost," she said. "Just open the doors and decide what you really need at that particular moment."

It's already been put to good use by people like Donna Anderson.

"It's a blessing we've got this now," Anderson said.

She picked up a blanket and some food to help her get by. 

"I hate to go up there," she said, "But like I said, everything counts."
