Secondary schools across the Limestone District School Board joined the Good Food Stands initiative across Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington to provide improved food access for individuals and households in the region.The initiative offers the community a variety of fresh produce at reduced prices one day each month. No appointment is needed and the schedule and location of each Good Food Stand can be found at goodfoodstand-kfla.ca.
Good Food Stand locations have been designated at Sydenham High School, Napanee District Secondary School, Bayridge Secondary School, La Salle Intermediate & Secondary School and Loyalist Collegiate and Vocational Institute
Local school boards and their unions will also contribute by arranging for program delivery and support from school volunteers at the schools in the area. Kingston Community Health Centres will facilitate program delivery at each school one afternoon each month during the year.
The Good Food Stand initiative is supported by the KFL&A Food Access Advisory Committee and co-funded by the City of Kingston, United Way of KFL&A, and the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area.
