The Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service, Community Services Unit will be collecting food donations from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Thursday October 10th and Friday, October 11th to support Kawartha Food Share.
Officers and Kawartha Food Share volunteers will be at the Sobeys on Lansdowne Street West, Sobeys on Towerhill, and the Foodland on Sherbrooke Street the Thursday and Friday before Thanksgiving. They will also be collecting food donations at the Foodland in Lakefield in support of the Lakefield Food Bank on Friday, October 11th.
“This is a very busy time at local food banks and we appreciate the continued support we receive from the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service. Last year the Cram a Cruiser Food Drive raised over 12,000 lbs. of food,” says Dave Ralph, Chair of Kawartha Food Share.
Kawartha Food Share appreciates the support Peterborough and County residents offer in the fight against hunger in our community. Without this generosity and on-going assistance, it would truly be impossible to reach out to over 7,700 people a month who are in need. Kawartha Food Share also supplies healthy snacks to student nutrition programs who serve over 158,000 meals in area schools each and every month.
