God's Pantry Food Bank in Lexington is expanding.

And the bank is winning praise from a national group called 'Feeding America.

It's CEO, Vicki Escarra, says despite the recession, donations are at an all-time high.

And God's Pantry is one of their biggest food banks.

But Escarra says as cuts continue in Washington, it threatens how much money can be poured into organizations like God's Pantry.

The Lexington food bank hands out more than 23 million pounds of food to hungry families in Kentucky every year.
