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:
Delivers hot nutritious meals, prepared by our team, to after-school sites in our community to ensure children have the fuel they need to learn and thrive
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
Connects students at risk of hunger with healthy, family-friendly foods in a school setting.
Summer Meals for Kids
Delivers breakfast, lunch and dinner to children across our community during the summer months, when access to nutritious food is more difficult for food insecure families
Empowers families with the skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare healthy and affordable meals
Offers nutritious food to families visiting medical clinics to impact patients’ overall health
Brings a pantry directly to a neighborhood, and provides fresh produce and other nutritious food items for our neighbors, in isolated pockets of need
Provides nutritionally-balanced food boxes to seniors through a unique partnership with the Louisville Metro Police Department, mobile pantries for seniors and the Commodities Supplemental Food Program
