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.

 

Kenneth and Brenda Fowler won a basket of Kentucky food in a drawing by GCFB celebrating Food Check-Out Day.
Sherry Newman and Erika Cyphers represented the Garrard County Farm Bureau and donated to the local food bank.

Down the Backroads | Kindness Really Is a Way of Life in Kentucky

A recent survey conducted by an organization known as “Kindness.org” listed Kentucky as being the kindest state in the U.S. Now, I’m no rocket scientist, but I have figured that one out; no survey needed.
