Metro Afterschool Kids Cafe


Louisville Metro Community Services 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 eight 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.
