Kaslo Food Hub update and things going on in December

Film Screening, Christmas Hampers, Community Cares Network Dinner and more!

** Community Conversations That Matter!
Join us for a free event, a film screening of
Six Primrose – a feature-length documentary about the power of food to build community. The film looks at a food security program in Nova Scotia that supports social inclusion and life skills training through community meals, urban farming and “good food” banks.

Afterwards, we invite you to join us for a panel discussion about the film. Do the issues raised in the film have similiarities to Kaslo and Area D?  Are the solutions from Nova Scotia applicable here? A panel discussion explores these questions with the audience. Joining us on the panel are Aimee Watson (Regional Director, RDCK Area D), Suzan Hewat (Kaslo mayor), Phyllis White (skills training) and Patrick Steiner (food security coordinator, NKLCSS).

Snacks for the event are provided by the JVH Foods Class. Come out and enjoy an evening of ideas and inspiration.

Where: The Langham Cultural Centre

Community Christmas Dinner by Community Cares Network

— Wednesday, December 18th, 5pm-7pm
at the Kaslo Legion Hall —

This event provides a no-cost Christmas meal accompanied by musical entertainment and festive celebrations for whomever would like attend. Community volunteers cook and serve the meal, as well as provide the entertainment and do the cleaning up. The event attempts to ensure no individual or family goes without a traditional Christmas dinner, and also promotes social inclusion and reduces isolation. Every attempt is made to provide a ride to the event for those in need, or to deliver a Christmas meal to the residence of people not physically capable of attending. The event is part of a semi-annual community meal that the Community Cares Network is trying to deliver for residents of Kaslo and Area D.

The Community Cares Network is a coalition of Kaslo Senior Citizens Association, Legion Ladies Auxiliary, St. Andrews United Church, St. Mark’s Anglican Church, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, and North Kootenay Lake Community Services Society.

If you wish to attend, please fill in an RSVP to help us plan for all who will attend. RSVP’s are available at Cornucopia, Kaslo Food Hub and North Kootenay Lake Community Services Society. Or call the Food Hub at 353-7120 with name and number of guests attending.
Kaslo Food Hub Annual Fundraising Drive

Every year at this time the Kaslo Food Hub appeals to our supporters to think of us as you plan your annual gift giving. We need your help to keep providing our services to residents of Kaslo and Area D. Every donation, no matter the size, has an impact. With your help we provide food and programming that helps build a more food-secure community. That means less people going hungry in our community and more people able to feed themselves with high quality, nourishing food.

Annual donations to the Food Hub are a way of supporting people in your own community. No amount is too little or too big! For an even bigger impact, we can also set up monthly recurring donations. Donations are eligible for a tax receipt. Please contact us at office@nklcss.org or 353-7691 to find out how you can make a donation to the Kaslo Food Hub. Thank you!
