KentuckyOne starts ‘farm-to-hospital-table’ initiative with local farmers

RecordLogo-FKentuckyOne Health plans to serve patients at Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital food from a local farm through an initiative it calls “farm-to-hospital-table.”

According to a press release from KentuckyOne, the food will come from Iroquois Farm, an 8.7-acre plot in the Hazelwood neighborhood that KentuckyOne is leasing with local farmers Andrew Hockenberry and Ivor Chodowski.

Iroquois Farm is part of a larger urban farming project called the “South Points Food Collaborative,” located at the site of the former Iroquois housing project, the release said. The collaborative includes government, health care and non-profit organizations, according to the release.

“South Points Family Jam,” a kick-off event to present the project to the community, is planned for Oct. 15 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 4233 Tuscarora Way, located at the corner of Hazelwood and Bicknell avenues.
