Russell I. Alexander Awards 2014 Charitable Giving Fund Grant to Kawartha Lakes Food Source

The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is excited to receive $5,000.00.

LINDSAY, ON December 16th, 2014 –

A local business has just helped a local food bank with a grant of $5,000.00. The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is a community effort and not-for-profit organization of volunteers working to reduce hunger in the City of Kawartha Lakes

The Russell I. Alexander Charitable Giving Fund provides grants and financial support to community organizations that are doing great work, but may not be as visible as some of their larger counterparts.

Board Member Dr. Brian Fagan notes that “Kawartha Lakes Food Source opened its doors in March of 2002, after research by members of Rotary revealed a patchwork system of food aid by churches and social agencies. With one agency devoted to collecting and distributing food to food banks, front-line workers could focus on clients rather than stocking their shelves. …the working poor and one-third are on provincial disability support while nine per cent are on a pension. About 40 per cent of those receiving food from the Food Source through its members are children. …In a three-month period, the Food Source provides 11,000 servings of milk, fresh fruit and healthy snacks such as granola bars to hungry schoolchildren.”
