The Local Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high- need areas around the country. Local Board made up of Bath County Fiscal Court, Owingsville City Mayor's Office, Ministerial Association, Cabinet for Families and Children, Cabinet for Permanency& Protection, Salvation Army, Gateway Community Action Organization, Gateway Homeless Shelter, American Red Cross and a homeless representative will determine how the funds awarded to the Bath County Fiscal Court are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds available under this phase of the program.

Farm Bureau Celebrates Food Check-Out Week Owingsvflle, Ky- The cost of food in America remains affordable. American con- sumers spend, on aver- age, just over 10 percent of their disposable income for food, according to the U.S. Department of Agricul- ture's Economic Research Service. That means the aver- age household will have earned enough disposable income-that portion of in- come available for spend- ing or saving-to pay for its annual food supply in about 44 days, said Kay Buckler, women's chair- man for the Bath County Farm Bureau. "Not only is America's food supply the world's saf- est, but it's also the most affordable," said Buckler. "The safe, abundant and affordable domestic food supply produced by Amer- ica's farmers is responsi- ble, at least in part, for out nation's increasing stan- dard or living. Compared to food, Americans work longer each year to pay for their housing, federal tax- es and medical care." In recognition of this, Bath County Farm Bureau is celebrating Feb. 15-21, 2009, as food Check-Out Week. Long after Food Check- Out Week, Americans are required to continue earn- ing income for other neces- sities. "We work longer to pay for housing, federal taxes and medical care than for food," Buckler said. The Tax Foundation has reported that Americans must work 52 days each year to pay for health and medical care, 62 days to pay for housing/household expenses and 77 days to pay their federal taxes.
