Food Check-out Week
The cost of food in America remains affordable. According to the U. S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, American consumers spend, on average, just over 10 percent of their disposable income for food annually. The consumer makes enough money to pay for this food in about seven weeks.
In recognition of this week, Bullitt County Farm Bureau is celebrating Food Check-Out Week by delivering food items to the residents of Colonial House in Shepherdsville plus a donation; and we also filled the Shepherd’s Pantries that Pastor Rob Beckett oversees in the county.
