First Annual Art Competition for Kawartha Lakes Food Source

Giving the gift of a donation on behalf of a family member, friend, teacher or coach is a wonderful way to express your appreciation while helping the community.  Kawartha Lakes Food Source has cards that we provide to those who want to make a donation instead of giving a gift.

As we are getting ready to wrap up our 15th year of operation, we wanted to hold the 1st annual art competition and the winning images would be featured on the cards. There will be four cards in the series and they can be collected annually.

Four local artists shared their time and talents.  Their submissions were all very different.  “It was interesting to see the variety that people produced and they are all effective in their own way” said Judy Jackett, one of three judges of the competition and fellow artist.  The images were of food markets from around the world, to the beauty of our backyard, the hope of horses, and whimsical garden creatures.

The judges agreed that Sarah Burt’s whimsical, pen and water color garden creatures were worthy of being the winning images for the cards.  They are unique in color and perspective, and will instigate conversations and admiration.

At the announcement on February 8 at Kawartha Lakes Food Source the artists came together to celebrate their work.  “I feel surprised and grateful!  I was glad to donate the time to a cause that is so important.” Sarah Burt expressed.

On behalf of our nine member food banks and the Board of Directors, I would like to say a hearty THANK YOU to the artists and the judges for supporting Kawartha Lakes Food Source!

The cards featuring Sarah’s work will be available on April 1.  To receive a card, please come to the Kawartha Lakes Food Source distribution centre (41 George Street West, Lindsay) or call 705-324-0707.  A charitable tax receipt can be provided to the donor or the recipient for donations over $20.  Please provide this information at time of donation.
