Local lunch program doing great work

We love seeing our community coming together to support kids, and that is exactly what happened this summer. MyKawartha reported, " It was brought to the attention of the Food Security Working Group of Kawartha Lakes Food Coalition that some students in Lindsay get anxious and sad during the summer months about not having enough to eat, especially without school lunch/snack programs in place." So the Summer Outreach Lunch Program was created and over the summer 1,384 lunches were provided. If you want to get involved, contact Kawartha Lakes Food Source at 705-324-0707!
