Thursday is a hectic day of the week for Candice Toms, a Lindsay mother of two. That’s why, like so many other parents, she relies on the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes’ dinner program to give her a hand.
For only $5 she knows that her daughter, Amelia, will get a fantastic, nutritious dinner that night. Toms works 9 am to 5 pm each day at her business, Everyday Specialties Inc., a promotional product manufacturer in Lindsay. But Amelia has swimming on Thursday nights, so there’s no time to be cooking dinner and then have time to make that swim practice.
“They can’t eat at McDonald’s for that price,” she tells the Advocate. “And at the club it’s a healthy dinner – it’s just fantastic.”
