Jefferson County Food Checkout Day

 

Alissa Summers member of the Louisville Aggies 4-H Livestock Club and Tommee Clark, Owner of Sunny Acres Farm in Louisville, KY met with consumers to visit the Jeffersontown Winters Farmers Market this past Saturday. Tommee and Alissa helped to promote National Food Checkout Day by having folks guess how much all the food cost on the table. The two closest guesses would receive a gift certificate to purchase produce or other items from the Deutsch Family Farm or Sunny Acres Farm.  The winners were:

Carrie Peters - $20 gift certificate to Sunny Acres, and Linda Hudson - $20 to Deutsch Family farm.

All of the food used for the demonstration was donated to the Jeffersontown Area Ministries.
