KFB Celebrates “Food Check-Out Day” in Frankfort
Phyllis Amyx, Chair of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Women’s Committee, made a special trip to the state capitol in Frankfort on February 20 to present Representative C.B. Embry with a basket of Kentucky-made products in recognition of “Food Check-Out Day.”
Kentucky Farm Bureau hosts this event each year in mid-February to mark the date when the average American has earned enough income to meet his or her annual cost of food – about 10 percent of a person’s disposable income, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Full details on the history of Food Check-Out Week are available on the American Farm Bureau Federation website.
