    (Blogger’s note: This is a guest post from reader Adam Price. Thanks, Adam!)

    I spent last Saturday morning at the Beechmont open air (farmer’s) market talking about the 4th annual Taste of South Louisville to benefit South Louisville Community Ministries (SLCM). I spoke with a woman there who lamented that so many people have a negative perception of South Louisville, often formed without having spent much time here.

    I suspect anyone who lives in South Louisville has encountered that at some point, and to be sure there are real poverty and crime issues. SLCM serves approximately 22,000 residents in zip codes 40214, 40215, 40208 and 40209, more than a quarter of those 22,000 live below the poverty line. We operate multiple Meals on Wheels routes, a food pantry, and offer direct assistance with utility, rent and medicine assistance. We also offer counseling through a partnership with Campbellsville University.  SLCM is working on the front lines to help those most in need and is making a real difference in people’s lives.

    As I responded to the woman I spoke with on Saturday, the best way to combat that negative perception is to showcase the great things happening in our area. With a strong history of ethnic diversity, it is no surprise that many of the city’s best international restaurants reside in South Louisville.

    This year, the Taste of South Louisville is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 24 at Churchill Downs Millionaire’s row from 6-8 p.m., tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for kids 5-11. There will be a silent auction that will include items like a football signed by AJ Green and an autographed Jennifer Lawrence poster. All proceeds go to benefit South Louisville Community Ministries.

    Come have a great time, eat some wonderful food, and learn a little more about a great part of town, all for a good cause. You can find out more about our programs here or the taste of South Louisville here.
