We have seen the postponement or cancellation of multiple tours over the past 18 months due to COVID-19. But those were concert tours.

There's one tour that the pandemic, thankfully, has not touched. It's called the "Alliance to Defeat Hunger," and it's on a 10-city tour across the United States to do exactly that--distribute free food to those in need.

It began in June in Springdale, Arkansas, and has crisscrossed the nation every since with stops in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Kansas, North Carolina, Washington, Iowa, Texas, and now Kentucky. It is the second to last stop on the tour; Enid, Oklahoma will host the final event of the year at the end of September.

Feed the Children, Tyson Foods, and Americold have joined forces to help stamp out hunger with these distribution events. The one in Sebree--in a partnership with Breaking Bread Ministries--will be held Thursday, September 9th at Sebree City Hall.

After opening remarks at 9:30 AM, the event will begin at 10 AM and last until noon. And it's not just food that will be given out. At each event, 25-pound boxes of non-perishable food items along with 15-pound boxes of essentials like shampoo, lotion, and other personal-care items are distributed along with Tyson products. Additional items will also be handed out.

All items will be distributed to clients of Breaking Bread Ministries.

Additionally, the aforementioned companies will team up with the schools in each of these communities to set up pantries so that food, school supplies, and other essential items such as personal hygiene products will be readily available to those who need them.

NOTE: This event is not open to the public as items will only be distributed to clients of Breaking Bread Ministries.
