Bourbon County Backpack Program

Who We Help

The Bourbon County Homemakers and the Bourbon County Nutrition Education Program is working to reduce hunger for children in our county. Our program purchases and distributes food to the Paris and Bourbon County Resource Centers. The food is packed in a small bag and dropped into the children's bachpack. Backpack bags then go home at the end of each week. If you would like to participate in the program, feel free to make a monetary or edible donation!
