Jackson County Farm Bureau Celebrates Food Check-Out Day

 

Food Check-Out Day is celebrated each year by Kentucky Farm Bureau to bring attention to our farmers and ranchers and the abundant and affordable supply of food that is available in this country. Statistics show that Americans only have to work about 7 weeks into the new year to earn enough money to be able to purchase their food for the whole year.  

The winner of Jackson County Farm Bureau’s Food Check-Out Day gift certificate for 2016 was Debra Adkins of McKee, KY. Debra was presented with a $25 gift certificate from the McKee Save-A-Lot store.
