The mission of Project M.E.N.U. is to give back to local communities, veterans, and military families. More than 54 million Americans are food insecure and approximately 3 million are veterans and military families. The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified this need. As schools shifted to remote learning during the pandemic, 30 million children were without access to daily meals. Project M.E.N.U. enables the Lockheed Martin FLDP community to partner with foodbanks locally and globally to deliver non-perishable food to those in need.

Every $1 donated to God’s Pantry Food Bank allows us to gather and distribute enough food for eight meals! How is that possible? It’s simple. There is an abundance of food available to us at no cost, but we need funds to move that food from it’s location to where it’s most needed. For example, a food wholesaler donates 10,000 pounds of tomatoes to the Food Bank that has a retail value of $10,000. While we pay nothing for the product, we must spend $1,000 to transport the tomatoes from their original location to the pantries where they are distributed to clients. Your $1 may allow you to donate a pound of tomatoes at retail price, but that same $1 allows us to provide 10 pounds of tomatoes to hungry Kentuckians. We also have bulk purchasing power, stretching every dollar farther.
