Kawartha Lakes Food Source receives grant

Wow! The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is doing some really amazing work! They just got a grant for $97,000 to fight poverty and will be opening two more food banks! One possible way the money could be used, "is a partnership program with local restaurants and caterers to package viable food at the end of service into individual freezer meals for clients. These meals will be especially beneficial for those with limited cooking facilities (e.g. limited to a microwave) and for singles who may have difficulty cooking nutritious meals for one." Amazing!
