The Kinsmen Club of Lindsay will be making of individual frozen meals with Kawartha Lakes Food Source overseeing. It is expected that approximately 300-400 servings will be made. Club members are cooking Feb. 15 at 1 pm, Feb. 20 at 6 pm and Feb. 22 at 1 pm.
It’s a way for the club to participate in Kin Canada’s 8th annual National Day of Kindness as a way to thank the community for their on-going support and to celebrate the association’s long history of serving the community’s greatest need.
The frozen meals will be done at Calvary Pentecostal Church using their certified kitchen with other volunteers assisting.
These meals will be distributed to each individual food bank starting the week of Feb 24. There are nine food banks, plus Women’s Resources which act as a food bank for their clients.
The City of Kawartha Lakes will be declaring Kinsmen week and flying their centennial flag.
National Day of Kindness also celebrates the founding of the association by Hal Rogers on Feb. 20, 1920. This February marks Kin’s 100th anniversary. Last year, 163 clubs across Canada performed countless acts of kindness including delivering coffee to first responders, sponsoring public skating, visiting seniors, and paying for parking at hospitals.
Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs across the country work to better their local communities and enhance the well-being of Canadians. There are currently over 400 clubs and 6,000 members.
Kin Canada is the nation’s largest all-Canadian service club organization. For more general information, see Kin Canada’s website: www.kincanada.ca.
