'Bologna Alley' marker honoring Cathedral to be unveiled Monday

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – An honorary sign will be unveiled tomorrow to recognize the Cathedral of the Assumption's long-running homeless lunch program.

It's a tradition that dates to the 1930’s – the Cathedral feeding the homeless seven days a week.

Over all those decades, they've distributed at least 2 million free lunches with each one of them containing a bologna sandwich.

In honor of their hard work, Louisville Metro council plans to install a historic marker designating the area where people line up for the lunches as "Bologna Alley."

Metro Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith spearheaded the resolution for the sign and it was approved by the council in May.

The formal unveiling ceremony is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. at the corner of Muhammad Ali and Cathedral Alley.
