United Food Operation, Inc.(UFO) celebrates its 35th year of community service with a special kickoff event on Friday, Jan. 13 at 11:00 AM. UFO is an all-volunteer organization that purchases and distributes food to 12 participating community food pantries each winter season. The group serves Kanawha and Putnam counties.

The event will recognize the growth of food insecurity in our region and role that local food pantries and the United Food Operation play in fighting hunger.

This year’s food distribution program will run from Jan. 13 through April 1. For additional background information on United Food Operation please visit the program website at
