Organizations providing free meals for those without power

From all over the community, people are donating food to people without power and many children are coming to get a hot meal.

At the Americana Community Center, a free dinner was served. For many, it's the first hot meal they've had in days.

Veronica Stevenson and her 17-month old daughter, Morgan Willis, are tired of having no power, but are very thankful for the free lunch and dinner from the Kids Cafe at the Americana Community Center.

People of all ages lined up for a lunch of macaroni and cheese, sloppy joes, bread, an apple and carrots.

Kids Cafe is normally for children only, but because of the widespread power outages, lunch and dinner yesterday and today is open to the community.

Kids Cafe is sponsored by the Dare to Care Food Bank which serves free meals at various locations in Kentuckiana.

This morning, the Food Bank gave out items like fruit and peanut butter to people at the Dismas Charities. Ten truck loads of food are also on the way to Louisville to help people cope without electricity.

"Even when the power comes back, this increased need is still going to be there. Folks have lost a lot of food and are having to replace it with very, very limited budgets so we expect this increase to go beyond the power outage and to continue through this month," said Stan Siegwald, Dare To Care.

Stevenson is just grateful there are organizations willing to help people in need.

There's also a community dinner at Peace Presbyterian church on Indian Trail from 5 to 7 p.m. for people without power.
