Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl


The Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl is a competition between county offices to collect funds and nonperishable food items for the Kentucky Association of Food Banks.  It is a statewide collaboration between the Office of the Secretary of State and the Kentucky Association of Counties.

From October 15 – 31st, 2018, county offices across the state raised the equivalent of over 70,000 pounds of food! That’s enough food for 59,519 meals for our neighbors at risk of hunger.

Congratulations to the winners:

  • Grand Champion: The office of Scott County Magistrate David Livingston. They raised the equivalent of 20,125 pounds of food!
  • Second: Kenton County Circuit Court Clerk John Middleton’s office.
  • Third: Jefferson County Circuit Court Clerk David Nicholson’s office.


“Far too many Kentuckians face hunger daily. The need is great, and it continues to persist. But, thanks to our local county officials and KACo, more than 71,000 pounds of food will help provide a lot of relief this holiday season through Kentucky’s food banks and their incredible teams.” – Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
