Kentucky Proud® Buy Local Restaurants source from and support local farms. Offered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, this program rewards participants for enhancing their menus with locally sourced Kentucky Proud® farm ingredients.

“The nation is mobilizing for war against an invisible enemy: the COVID-19 pandemic,” Quarles said. “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.”

“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.

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.
