Buy local

Restaurants & Food Service Participants

The Buy Local Program is extended solely to Kentucky Proud® members. Buy Local is an incentive program offered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture to reward restaurants, caterers, schools, and other food service participants for enhancing their menus with locally sourced Kentucky Proud® farm ingredients. 15% reimbursement can be earned on eligible food purchases. Distributors that provide detailed quarterly reports on behalf of participating restaurants will be considered for a 2.5% reimbursement on eligible sales. When you buy Kentucky Proud, you tell your customers you care enough to serve fresh, delicious, nutritious local foods. Join the Buy Local program today!
