Food Check-Out Week

-A A +A

 The cost of food in America remains affordable.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, American consumers spend, on average, just over 10 percent of their disposable income for food.

According to Mark Haney, Kentucky Farm Bureau President, that means the average household will have earned enough disposable income, that portion of income available for spending or saving, to pay for its annual food supply in about seven weeks.

In recognition of this, Bullitt County Farm Bureau is celebrating Food Check-Out Week on Feb. 19-25.

The agency delivered food items to the residents of Colonial House in Shepherdsville on Wednesday, Feb. 20, to celebrate this special week.
