Press Release   |   Jan 09, 2020

Central KY Community Action Council, Inc. was awarded a grant from the Kentucky Colonels. The grant will be used to purchase an electric range for our Congregate Meals Program at our Bardstown Senior Center.

The Senior Centers are a place for those aged sixty or over to get a hot nutritious lunch, have interaction with other senior citizens, receive nutritional education and perform exercise activities.

The Bardstown Senior Center, located in Nelson County, is one of our bigger centers. It is also one of our bigger catering sites. Bardstown caters for the centers in Nelson, Marion and Washington counties. They prepare 100+ meals a day. Currently, we are using a standard range to prepare these meals and it can be quite challenging. This grant will allow us to purchase an electric range that will help us prepare these meals more efficiently.
