  • Buy local, think global

    When shopping for food, try to broaden your horizons beyond the usual grocery or discount store. By spending more of your food dollar locally, you help strengthen your local food system.

    Try making a stop at local agribusinesses when fresh produce is in season. Look for Kentucky made products in all your food outlets. Try spending at least 10 percent of your food budget on local or Kentucky foods.

  • Senior transportation in jeopardy

    Rising costs and shrinking government assistance is endangering the senior transportation program ran by the Central Kentucky Community Action Council.

    Lynne B. Robey, who was hired as executive director in January, said last program year, the costs for the program were double the reimbursement rate.

    “Central Kentucky Community Action Council, Inc. is no longer able to operate any programs in this manner,” said Robey. “We feel a deep commitment to the seniors; however, we can no longer jeopardize the financial status of the agency.”
