The Louisville Metro Community Action Partnership (CAP), part of the Department of Community Services and Revitalization, is currently taking applications from qualified groups and organizations interested in becoming a 2014 Summer Food Service Program Site. Participating distribution sites may include organizations such as churches, community centers, youth centers, and private or non-profit groups.

Last year, CAP sponsored approximately 40 sites, and there is a need for more sites this summer. Sites selected have the option of serving breakfast, lunch, or dinner plus a to youth ages 1 through 18 (or persons 19 and over who are mentally or physically disabled and participating in a public or private nonprofit school program for the mentally or physically disabled). The program runs from June 9 through August 1, 2014. No food preparation is involved and the meals are provided at no cost to the sites.

Interested organizations must submit a site application form before May 2, 2014. This form may be obtained by contacting Dianne Gooch, Supervisor of the SFSP at 502-574-6082, or by
