Friday Luncheon: featuring Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles

Friday’s luncheon features a true advocate for Kentucky!

Because of the Department’s Kentucky Hunger Initiative, the Commonwealth now has the strongest legal protections for food donors in the nation. Dr. Quarles’s outspoken advocacy for farmers has been recognized on the regional and national levels. He currently serves as President of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA). You will not want to miss this informative opportunity!
