Hopkinsville Community College’s Pathfinder Pantry will host a special food giveaway before Thanksgiving.
Yvette Eastham, Executive Director of the HCC Foundation, said the Great Gobble Giveaway would take place at the Hopkinsville and Fort Campbell campuses. This event is sponsored by the foundation, the Hopkinsville Rotary Club, Feeding America – Kentucky’s Heartland, and the Kroger – Zero Hunger Zero Waste program.
Eastham added the event would begin Monday morning, November 23, at 11:00.
The Hopkinsville campus will have 85 totes to give away, with the Fort Campbell campus passing out 15. Each tote will contain chicken, dressing, sweet potatoes, vegetables, fruit, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, ravioli, and more. Students will need to register to receive a tote of food for the holiday. Every student received an email from the college Wednesday for information on how to register for the giveaway.
