Save The Children Food Boxes

It is the second week of the farmers to families food box giveaway in Perry County.The giveaway is made possible by Save the Children and the USDA. People throughout the community lined up outside of Perry Central High School to collect their food boxes. Organizers say they gave away more than two thousand gallons of milk and food boxes full of produce, proteins, and dairy products. They are hoping the food boxes will meet the needs of families.“We have a lot of families here in Eastern Kentucky that just don’t have the means, transportation some, they just don’t have the money to come out and buy the food, so we have a lot of food insecurity in this county, in this whole region actually,” says Susie Sizemore with Save the Children.
