Kawartha Lakes Food Source (KLFS) is opening a new food bank in Kinmount — the home town of local MPP Laurie Scott.
The new food bank is made possible with funding from Food Banks Canada and Enterprise Holding Foundation. It will be located at the Baptist Church (side entrance) at 4937 Monck Rd., and is scheduled to open December 13. It will operate two Thursdays a month. The new food bank will help to serve the northern region of City of Kawartha Lakes. The Kinmount and Area Food Bank aims to serve clients in their own community, increase their access to food and reduce barriers such as lack of transportation or distance to travel.
