The Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission received an $87,000 contribution to help families and children have enough to eat.
The donation – which was given to the non-profit organization through the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program – will work to keep the shelves stocked at a local food pantry and help families start and expand food gardens in Carroll County.
At a meeting toward the end of June, I had a discussion about how quickly the summer was going by and that it seemed like it was almost over. The funny part about this discussion is that summer had not actually even started.
Our definition of the seasons is no longer determined by when they actually start, but by when our idea of them starts. Summer might be the most extreme example of this, but they all seem to follow the pattern ingrained in us by the schedule we followed from age 5 to age 18: the school calendar.
Feed the Children and Speedway Children’s Charities will host a free food distribution event Aug. 14 at Carroll County High School. Volunteers will need to be on site at 8 a.m. to unload the truck. A meeting for volunteers will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 29, at First Baptist Church in Carrollton.
Eligible families will receive vouchers from Carroll County Schools for food, and pick up will be held from 10 a.m.-noon at the high school parking lot near the athletics fields. Signs will be posted to help direct traffic, which will enter from Hwy. 227.
