NKADD Competes Against Other Development Districts in Statewide Food Drive

Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes will join with NKADD Board Chairman Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson and Executive Director Lisa Cooper and representatives from the Freestore Foodbank to kick off a statewide food drive competition that challenges Kentucky’s local and county government offices to donate food and funds to aid Kentucky families.

A press conference is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20, at the NKADD office, 22 Spiral Drive, Florence.

The Office of the Secretary of State, The Kentucky Council of Area Development Districts (KCADD), and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks (KAFB) partnered to create the competition, which will run from October 16-27. The Area Development District that raises the most food and funds will win the Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl.

“One in five Kentucky children don’t always know where their next meal will come from,” said Grimes at a press conference in Frankfort Sept. 14 to announce the competition. “We have to do better, we must do better. That’s why we are partnering with the Commonwealth’s Area Development Districts and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks to help us feed Kentucky’s kids and their families as we approach the winter and this holiday season.”

“It breaks my heart to know that more than 56,000 residents of our eight Northern Kentucky counties struggle with hunger and food insecurity,” said Tomlinson. “We’re counting on our businesses, local governments and organizations to come together to help provide some comfort to our neighbors in need.”

Every $1 donated through the competition will return $8 or more in food to the community.

Proceeds and goods generated from the competition will directly aid the members of the KAFB – an organization that distributes more than 58 million meals to 1 in 7 Kentuckians annually in partnership with a network of 800 local charitable feeding organizations throughout all 120 counties in Kentucky.
