LOUISVILLE, KY – Woodforest Charitable Foundation makes a $3,270 donation to Dare to Care Food Bank.

Founded in 1969, Dare to Care Food Bank partners with over 300 local, social service agencies to distribute food to those who need it most. In the past year, the Food Bank provided over 12 million meals to over 192,000 people.

The mission of Dare to Care is to lead the community to feed the hungry and conquer the cycle of need. They plan to fulfill this mission through innovative programs, efficient operations and by partnering with food pantries, shelters and emergency kitchens.

In addition to providing food to hundreds of emergency kitchens, shelters and food pantries, Dare to Care operates several programs targeting the most vulnerable their community. These programs include Kids Café, which provides free, nutritious meals and enrichment activities after school for children at risk of hunger. Backpack Buddy 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. Mobile Pantries bring food directly to a neighborhood to provide fresh produce and other nutritious items for neighbors in isolated pockets of need. Patrol Against Hunger provides nutritionally balanced food boxes to seniors in need through a unique partnership with the Louisville Metro Police Department. Cooking Matters empowers families with the skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare healthy and affordable meals.

“Because of caring friends like you, more children will go to school ready to learn. More seniors won’t have to choose between buying groceries and medication. And many hardworking parents will be able to put food on the table for their families. Thank you again for providing hope and nourishment for our neighbors in need,” said Brian Riendeau, Executive Director of Dare to Care Food Bank.
