Food Assistance & Unemployment Resources

Kentucky is seeing on average about 13,000 new unemployment claims per day, as officials continue to increase staff to meet demand. In the meantime, we understand that many in our community are suffering during this difficult time. We have compiled this list of resources to assist those affected to file an unemployment claim and request food assistance.
