Hunger in Kentucky: Know More, Do More

By Teresa Bright
Adair County Cooperative Extension Service

What does it mean to be hungry? Inspired by the fact that 1 out of every 6 Kentuckians do not always know if they will have enough food, the University of Kentucky Extension is working to empower and mobilize community leaders to learn about, identify, and act on food insecurity issues in their community.

The Hunger in Kentucky: Know More, Do More project will teach community members and leaders how to describe concerns related to food insecurity; how to recognize food insecurity as a community issue; how to identify community resources to address food insecurity; and how to develop one or more goals to address food insecurity in the community. The project is for leaders and members of community organizations and groups who interact with limited-resource families.

Join us at the Adair County Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street, Columbia, KY, at NoonCT on Thursday, January 20, 2022, to examine Hunger in Kentucky and think about ways to help our community and neighbors be more food secure.

For more information, and to register for the program, contact the Adair County Extension Office at 270-384-2317.
