Food insecure, under served, low-income, first world malnourished children, government program participants ...I've decided that there really isn't a correct way to describe something that shouldn't exist. Until a solution is found you can help us make a difference one household at a time by getting involved in the Food for All Community Garden to benefit the refugee CSA, HOTEL INC providing locally grown food and teaching people how to use it, the Barren River Food System Alliance with support from Community Farm Alliance and the Double Dollars program launching soon at Community Farmers Market Bowling Green. The double dollars program partners private funding from local businesses and individuals with government funded nutrition programs to help real people eat better food and keep more dollars in our local economy.
