National Ag Literacy Week
  • March 21, 2013

Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) joins farming organizations across the country on March 19 to celebrate National Agriculture Day. This date is set aside annually to highlight the many ways America¹s food system improves the quality of life for everyone. Farmers in the United States continue to produce the safest, most abundant and lowest-cost food supply of any nation in the world. Because agriculture also provides components of almost everything people eat, use and wear on a daily basis ­ and is increasingly contributing to consumer demand for alternative fuels and other bio-products ­ organizers of the National Ag Day program believe that every American should: understand how food, fiber and renewable resource products are produced value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber and renewable resource industries.

Food Check-Out Week is a time when farm bureau members, along with agriculture producers, make a special effort to reach out to food consumers, answering questions about food that is grown, and livestock that is raised. In celebration of this, the Lyon Co KFB board purchased food to give to the local food bank, Hope Food Bank. The office also accepted canned/boxed food donations from the community in an attempt to raise awareness of the cost and availability of food. For more information on Food Check-Out Week, go to American Farm Bureau’s webpage.

Colllecting Box Tops
  • December 14, 2012

Lyon Co KFB has begun collecting box tops and Campbell’s soup can labels to send to the Red Bird Mission in Eastern KY. The Red Bird Mission has been providing ministries in that region of the Appalachian Mountains. Needs in that isolated, rural area remain critical due to poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing, and rugged mountain terrain. The Red Bird Mission tries to assist in five areas: Education, Health and Wellness, Community Outreach, Economic Opportunity, and Community Housing Improvement.

The Lyon Co KFB also continues to collect food for the local food bank, The Hope Food Bank, and the supplies for the local animal shelter. Supplies needed for the animal shelter are food; old blankets/sheets/towels; monetary donations; etc.

Hours of collection for these items are Monday – Friday, 7:30am to 4:30pm.

Thanks to all our KFB members and community for assisting us with our endeavor to assist these 3 organizations.
