MCMINNVILLE, Tenn. — Warren County Emergency Food Bank is having a crisis of its own: Funding is decreasing as the need for food in the community is increasing. “The food bank is funded currently by three means,” said Food Bank board member Brent Nunley. “FEMA, the county, and local donations are the three ways we are currently being funded to purchase food, pay rent to a facility within the city limits, and pay a part-time worker to man the food bank during the week.”Of the funding sources, FEMA, cut its funding from $6,845 in fiscal year 2013 to $4,872 in 2014.
