Children's Summer Food Service Program Begins June 9, 2014



The Louisville Metro Community Action Partnership (CAP) is once again participating in the Summer Food Service Program for children beginning Monday, June 9, 2014. Nearly 20 sites across Jefferson County will serve a combination of the two following meals -- breakfast, lunch, and a snack -- to all children age one (1) to 18 years old free of charge.

Meals provided are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. The free meal service runs through Friday, August 1, 2014. Meals will be provided at the sites and times as follows:

Please see attached 2014 Summer Food Service Open Site Listing.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Federally funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) with a pass through grant from the Kentucky Department of Education, the SFSP reimburses organizations, like CAP, that sponsor eligible sites.

“Our goal is to ensure that children in our community receive well-balanced, nutritious meals during the summer months so they return to school ready-to learn," said Virginia Peck, Director of Community Services and Revitalization, which includes CAP.

For more information regarding the site locations and starting and ending times of meal service for each site, contact MetroCall at 311, or CAP at (502) 574-1157 or visit www.louisvilleky.gov/CAP.
