Description
Community Care City of Kawartha Lakes opened a second kitchen, effectively doubling the organization’s Meals on Wheels production capacity. Village Housing in Lindsay welcomed the program into its commercial kitchen, fulfilling a long-standing vision for the partnership. This allows Community Care to cook and serve nutritious and delicious hot meals to even more residents across the City of Kawartha Lakes, while also providing an important social interaction and wellness check.

Meals on Wheels saw a large increase in demand since the start of the pandemic, as the program was able to help seniors and adults with special needs or mobility issues receive healthy, fresh meals while staying safe at home. From March 2020 to the end of December 2020, over 28,000 meals were delivered throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes to over 400 of the community’s most vulnerable people.
