Food Security Outreach
Every other week participants cook together, both for their own household, and to provide some extra portions to keep in the church freezer for anyone in need of a lovingly prepared meal.
We generally cook a hearty soup and a casserole, and also enjoy lunch together.
St. James Good Food Box Program
This program offers “boxes” of food for a very reasonable price and has been running since June 2012. Although it has always been called a “box” the contents are now being supplied in clear plastic bags, which serve well as kitchen garbage bags in Kawartha Lakes’ new “clear bag” waste collection regime!
It piggy-backs on the Kawartha-wide program administered by Community Care that provides a generous supply of fresh vegetables and fruits, once a month.
