Hunger Awareness Week is an effort to engage communities and individuals across Canada to raise awareness of the issue of hunger in Canada and the role of local food banks.
The City of Kawartha Lakes has a population of 74,000, of that 2,400 people are food bank clients. Of all food bank clients in CKL 34% are children. It is clear that precarious employment, low income and high housing and utility costs are affecting people in this community.
In CKL we will be reaching out and asking local restaurants to get involved and go silent to give hunger a voice. By turning off the tunes on September 21st they will let hunger be heard. KLFS will be hosting a food drive a Reid’s Valu-Mart on Thursday, September 21st as well, asking the community to donate food and funds to fight hunger.
By learning about hunger in our communities, we can all change the way we think about need and make the changes required to reduce it. We encourage everyone to take part! Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter @KawarthaLakesFoodSource to get all the updates and info!
