In addition to providing food to hundreds of emergency kitchens, shelters and food pantries, Dare to Care operates several programs targeting the most vulnerable in our community.  These programs include:

Backpack Buddy: provides nutritious, kid-friendly foods to children from low-income families on weekends when they do not receive free and reduced-price breakfasts and lunches

Community Kitchen: prepares and delivers hot, nutritious meals to Kids Cafes.

Mobile Pantry: brings a pantry directly to a neighborhood and provides fresh produce and other nutritious food items for our neighbors in isolated pockets of need

Patrol Against Hunger: provides nutritionally balanced food boxes to seniors in need through a unique partnership with the Louisville Metro Police Department

Cooking Matters: empowers families with the skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare healthy and affordable meals
