Commissioner's Comments

Together, we can reduce hunger in Kentucky

RYAN QUARLES
Agriculture Commissioner

The Kentucky Hunger Task Force met for the first time June 2 at Gallrein Farms in Shelby County. The task force is part of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Hunger Initiative, a first-of-its-kind effort to alleviate food insecurity in Kentucky. Feeding the hungry is a moral imperative. It’s also a practical matter that impacts Kentucky’s economy.
