The Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Hunger Initiative is a first-of-its-kind effort to alleviate food insecurity in Kentucky. The objectives of the Hunger Initiative will be to study the sources of hunger, identify the unique issues that affect different regions of the Commonwealth, and take an inventory of resources that can be brought to bear against the hunger problem in Kentucky.
