Established in 1999, Food For Kids CKL is a non-profit community partnership that works to ensure all children attend school well nourished as well as promoting healthy eating habits in our children and youth. These efforts are made possible through the continued support of community members, local businesses, and service clubs who contribute funds or donate nutritious food and other supplies. Student nutrition programs engage many people in local communities by working closely with organizations and individuals in the communities.
Unlike national programs which spread donation dollars across Canada, Food For Kids CKL puts your donations to work in the communities where you live. One hundred percent of your donations to Food For Kids CKL are used to support student nutrition programs in the City of Kawartha Lakes. Your donations go directly to helping schools purchase healthy and nutritious food as well as kitchen supplies.
