Kentucky State University has started initial work on a food and nutrition project in the Jefferson County area.
The Thorobred Nutrition Kitchen is a 24-foot commercial kitchen created to provide education on nutrition and healthy cooking to communities and families. The kitchen is intended to make healthy foods more accessible, especially in urban neighborhoods.
With the help of the community and partnering organizations, the university plans to make a healthy impact in Louisville and across Kentucky by using the mobile produce market concept. KSU officials say the project will allow for research on food security and access.
KSU is collaborating with Louisville Metro Government, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's office, Mid Farm America, Farm Credit and YouthBuild of Louisville.
