Garrard County Celebrates Food Check-Out Day
The cost of food in America remains affordable. Americans spend, on average, just over 10 percent of their disposable income for food. That means the average household will have earned enough disposable income by mid-February to pay for a year of food.
As part of Food Check-Out Day we held a drawing for a Kentucky foods basket. The winners were Brenda and Kenneth Fowler. They were very excited to win and will be enjoying this food for weeks to come. Congratulations and thanks for participating.
We also donated $100 of food to the local food bank delivered by Sherry Newman and Erika Cyphers.
