Restore Farms to Food Banks Funding

This last year, the Farms to Food Banks program provided 8,964,790 meals of Kentucky grown produce to families in need, all while supporting Kentucky farmers. Funding for the Farms to Food Banks program is being considered by the Kentucky General Assembly this session. We are counting on them to restore the funding to the $600,000/year amount included in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s budget request.

Help ensure that Kentuckians facing food insecurity have access to Kentucky grown produce by sharing our one pager with your legislators and voicing your support for restoring Farms to Food Bank funding.

School Breakfast

For many Kentucky kids, school meals are the only meals they will eat throughout the day. Despite how important school meals are, we know that only 6 in 10 Kentucky kids who qualify for free and reduced meals are eating breakfast. We are asking the legislature to allow 15 minutes of instructional time to be use for students to consume school breakfast in the class room, which would encourage teachers to set aside time for kids to eat breakfast in the classroom. This ensures that all Kentucky kids have access to at least two meals a day.
