United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes

United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes is embarking on a very exciting new Community Garden project. We have entered into a land use agreement to turn 30,000 square feet of unused land at Crayola Canada into our largest ever Community Garden! This garden will enhance the availability of fresh produce for programs such as the Good Food Box, collective kitchens, Meals on Wheels, cooking classes, food banks, and food cupboards.  Community gardens yield more than food, they also provide many teaching opportunities and will draw people together socially and help strengthen our neighbourhoods.

Our objective for Giving Tuesday is to raise funds to support educational opportunities and programming at this new garden. We will be asking people to share their Favourite Fun Food Fact on social media to promote learning about food literacy, food security and agricultural practices and if they can, make a donation to support programming in our garden. This is an opportunity for people to learn more about food literacy, food security and agricultural practices and start thinking about how important these topics are in our region.
