Louisville Food BankMobile food banks are planned for the rest of the week to help feed families who lost food in this week’s power outages.

The food banks are sponsored by the Community Action Partnership and Dare to Care. They’ll serve anyone who has had food ruined by fires, power outages or floods caused by Sunday’s storm.

On Wednesday, more than 700 people visited a food bank in West Louisville, and Thursday’s bank will be in Shively. Louisville Food Bank

“One of the reasons why we picked the areas we did,” says CAP executive director Mary Elizabeth Miles, “It was based on how many persons were without power. So we’ll keep doing it until there isn’t a need anymore.”

Miles says there will definitely be a food bank set up on Friday, but a location has not yet been chosen. More may be planned based on how soon power is restored

The state is also issuing refunds for food stamps that were spent on food that has been ruined.
