The Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl is a friendly competition among Area Development Districts across the state to raise resources for hunger relief. It is a collaborative effort between the office of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Kentucky Council of Area Development Districts and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks.

The 2017 campaign will run from October 16, 2017 – October 27, 2017.  Our goal is to raise 400,000 pounds of food or $50,000 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the state legislation that created the Area Development Districts.

 

“One in five Kentucky children don’t always know where their next meal will come from. 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 for the Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl to help us feed Kentucky’s kids and their families as we approach the winter and this holiday season.” – Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.

 

 

“The Kentucky Council of Area Development Districts  is excited to partner with the Office of the Secretary of State and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks  in this statewide hunger relief effort.  The Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl, with the support of city and county leaders across our Commonwealth, will help provide families with the food they need to thrive.” – Mayfield Mayor/KCADD Co-Chair Teresa Rochetti-Cantrell.
