From July 1, 2022 – December 31, 2022, we have served 38,217 meals to 675 unduplicated clients.

The senior center participation is holding strong through the winter months whereas in the past we would see a decline in participation throughout the winter.

In January we distributed 2540 vouchers to 254 participants in the Meade County voucher program.

This program continues to grow each month.

Our Radcliff center has always been a 2 day a week site. We are now serving meals out of that location 5 days per week. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday’s are drive thru only meals and Tuesday and Friday’s participates can dine in or pick up in the drive thru. We are happy to be able to serve our participants in that location a hot meal 5 days per week now.

Ida Kyle, site coordinator at Griffin Manor in Elizabethtown has retired. Ida was a loyal employee to CKCAC for many years. We wish her the very best in her retirement. Since, Ida’s retirement we have hired Grace Compton as the new site coordinator for that location. Grace has been a wonderful asset to our team and we are thrilled to have her!

I am in the process of hiring a site coordinator in Grayson. Jeannette Salmon has worked at the Wal-Mart deli in Leitchfield for 14 years. We are excited to welcome her to our team.

We are actively searching for an assistant cook in Grayson County and a full time head cook in Nelson County.
