Gov. Beshear Donates Nearly $16K from Inaugural Fund to Feeding Kentucky

Governor also signs proclamation declaring today Hunger Free Day in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 28, 2021) – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear signed a proclamation declaring Jan. 28, 2021, as Hunger Free Day in Kentucky and made a surprise donation to the group Feeding Kentucky of nearly $16,000 left over from the Beshear-Coleman inaugural fund.
During a virtual event Thursday morning, the Governor praised the advocates and workers on the front line helping to make sure Kentucky families stay fed, work made tougher by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“In the best of times, your work is daunting. During COVID, it has been nothing short of heroic,” Gov. Beshear said. “The entire commonwealth owes you all a debt of gratitude but also – crucially – more than just words of thanks. Your efforts deserve our full support.”
Gov. Beshear made a surprise announcement during Thursday’s event with hunger organizations and advocates that he was donating $15,673 leftover from the Beshear-Coleman inaugural fund to Feeding Kentucky, an organization that helps feed Kentuckians in need. Remaining inaugural funds can only be donated to 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.

3. I want to see him for another term

But the rethug legislature is always trying to bring him down. He's the reason our new Covid rate is finally under 10%, and they want to censure him for his restrictions!
