New Kentucky Proud Takeout, CSA Websites Launched
Kentucky Ag Connection - 03/27/2020

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) announced Thursday two new web pages for consumers to support Kentucky farm families during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

"The nation is mobilizing for war against an invisible enemy: the COVID-19 pandemic," said Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles. "Just because you are working from home does not mean you have to stop supporting Kentucky farm families. My office has developed a web page for consumers to find Kentucky Proud Buy Local Restaurants offering carryout, curbside, and delivery during this time. Additionally, we have developed a new page dedicated to Community Supported Agriculture, commonly called a CSA."

Kentucky Proud Buy Local Restaurants source from and support local farms. Offered by KDA, this program rewards participants for enhancing their menus with locally sourced Kentucky Proud farm ingredients. For Kentucky Proud Buy Local Restaurants offering takeout options during the COVID-19 pandemic, go to kyproud.com/takeout.

"I encourage Kentuckians to go to kyproud.com/takeout to find a list of Kentucky Proud Buy Local Restaurants you and your families can support while you are working and staying at home," said Quarles. "Be sure to snap a photo and share it to social media with #KyProudTakeout to encourage people in your social network to buy local, too."

Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and consumers. Consumers buy "shares" of a farm's harvest in advance and then receive a portion of the crops throughout the harvest. Many Kentucky Proud CSAs have pick-up and delivery options. For Kentucky Proud CSAs, go to kyproud.com/csa.
