Extend a Hand. Change a Life.


Catholic Charities, Diocese of Covington is excited to announce that our mobile food pantry "Food for Friends" is now serving low income residents in Bracken County. Due to COVID-19, the pantry is currently operating as a drive-thru so that social distancing guidelines can be maintained to keep guests and volunteers safe. During this inital phase, each family will receive 20 to 40 food items at no cost provided by The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) and the pantry will be open the fourth Friday of every month. While Bracken County is the first location to open, future pantries will be opening in Mason, Pendleton, Grant, Owen, and Gallatin Counties.


Please Note:

Residents MUST bring a valid ID with the correct address on it to receive food.

Due to grant money, resident must reside in Bracken County.

The Bracken County Pantry will be held at St. James Church at 122 Garrett Avenue in Brooksville.
