Lake Cumberland Area Development District

Did you know that 700,000 Kentuckians struggle with food insecurity every day, and that 22% of children lack consistent access to enough food for a healthy, active lifestyle?

The Lake Cumberland Area Development District (LCADD) is participating in the Commonwealth of Kentucky Bowl this week through Friday, October 27. The Bowl is a friendly competition among area development districts across the state to raise resources for hunger relief.

It's a collaborative effort between the office of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Kentucky Council of Area Development Districts, and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks. Our collective goal is to raise 400,000 pounds of food or $50,000 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the state legislation that created the Area Development Districts.

There are two ways to help:

DONATE FOOD: Drop off canned goods, including soups, beans, stews, tuna, vegetables, and fruits, as well as peanut butter, macaroni and cheese and other pastas, 100% fruit juices, low-sugar cereals, and whole grain items to specially-designated locations throughout the region. All items collected in each county go to that county's local food pantry.

Drop off locations are as follows:

  • Adair County Senior Center, 901 Hudson Street, Columbia

  • Casey County Senior Center, 85 Beldon Avenue, Liberty

  • Clinton County Senior Center, 110 Springs Street, Albany
