Food Checkout Week in Hopkins County

 

Hopkins County Food Check Out Week was a huge success.  Local Students from the Madisonville North Hopkins FFA Chapter was present at Kroger along with the County Administrator Kimberly Faulk. Information was handed out and we had a wonderful display to show. There was a PSA that ran during the week and all the food that was in the basket was later donated to the Hopkins County Christian Food Bank. Kimberly Faulk also did food baskets and took them to local officials such as the Mayor of Madisonville David Jackson’s office pictured, each high school and each Kentucky Farm Bureau insurance office.
