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.
