Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes has announced the second annual Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl, a food drive hosted by her office with the Kentucky Association of Food Banks and the Kentucky Association of Counties. The Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl food drive is a friendly competition among Kentucky counties and their local officials across the state to raise resources for food banks at an important time of need—just before the holidays. Last year’s competition raised the equivalent of approximately 250,000 pounds of food. The 2018 campaign will run from October 15 through October 26. The partners’ goal is to raise 160,000 pounds of food or $20,000. Every dollar raised is equivalent to eight pounds of food.
