Resources for food needs, Dare to Care, food stamps & WIC

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps people with little or no money buy food for health meals at participating stores. Visit http://chfs.ky.gov/dcbs/dfs/foodstampsebt.htm#apply for more information or click here to contact your local Neighborhood Place.

The Senior Nutrition Program provides nutritional lunchtime meals to active senior citizens at Congregate Meal Sites and delivers to homebound seniors through the Meals on Wheels Program, throughout the Louisville Metro area.

The Newburg Community Center, one of the CAP satellite offices, serves as a Dare to Care Food Bank for designated zipcodes. Emergency food can also be distributed to clients visiting Neighborhood Place locations in special circumstances.

Each summer, CAP offers the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) at numerous locations throughout the community for children. SFSP provides free, nutritious meals for children one (1) to 18 years of age.

If you are pregnant, recently had a baby, are breastfeeding or have a child younger than 5 years of age, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) could help you. Visit http://chfs.ky.gov/dph/mch/Applying+For+WIC.htm for more information or click here to contact your local Neighborhood Place.

Community Services and Revitalization and Metro Parks are proud to partner with Dare to Care Food Bank to offer free evening meals to children in our community through our Metro Afterschool Kids Cafe program. At six Community Center locations, youth (6-18 years old) receive a warm, nutritious meal in a safe environment. In addition to receiving a meal, each child has the opportunity to participate in academic and extracurricular activities.
