This past year we have averaged around 178 families a month participating in the commodities program. The commodity program only costs the county on average $100 per month. That is less than 57 cents per family. This program would not be possible without the support of the Russell County Fiscal Court, a great group of volunteers, assistance from Jailer Bobby Dunbar & staff and the generosity of others.
