On the final day of donations for the Commonwealth of Kentucky statewide food drive, Northern Kentucky Democrats delivered checks totaling $2,100 and several pounds of non-perishable foods.

Dare Miller, a Campbell County Democrat, attended Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes’ press conference at NKADD on Sept. 20, when Lundergan Grimes announced the Commonwealth Bowl competition among the state’s 15 Area Development Districts.

Miller agreed that too many Kentucky families go hungry.

“One in four children is hungry. That is just not acceptable,” said Miller. “I went back to my group, the Campbell County Democratic Women’s Club, and told them about the Commonwealth Bowl, and they responded, so we reached out to other Democrat groups, but hunger crosses any kind of political lines.” Donations were received from Democratic Women’s groups from Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties and several individuals.

“We are so thankful for this donation. It will help so many people,” said Lisa Cooper, NKADD Executive Director.

For the Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl, the state’s 15 Area Development Districts are engaging in friendly competition for the most donations. All donations are going through the Kentucky Association of Food Banks and its partners for distribution within each Area Development District.

Other donations have been made online, at county courthouses and other drop-off sites, and at the NKADD office in Florence.

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.
