For Kawartha Lakes Food Source, this past year has been a particularly hard one, with KLFS member food bank usage increasing and donations unfortunately decreasing. We have been able to help keep more people from feeling the ache of hunger with the opening of our own food bank, the Lindsay Community Food Market, however the statistics have been displaying a distressing picture of more and more of our communities’ residents being unable to make ends meet.

This is why fundraisers like the Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Event are so very important! Come enjoy a barrel full of laughs while helping the vulnerable and food insecure in our region.
