KEMPTVILLE — The Highway 43 Car Club celebrated 10 years of community service in the best way possible. They split $2000 between four local food banks to help out local families during the holiday season.

The four local food banks included;

  • The Salvation Army
  • House of Lazarus
  • Community Food Share
  • Kanata Food Cupboard

A representative from the Kanata Food Cupboard spoke about how grateful they were to be given the cheque.

“So many people don’t even know we exist. They donate to the Ottawa Food Bank and assume we’re all one, but that is not the case,” she explained.

Ian McKelvie of Community Food Share told Nation Valley News that this donation will help them provide families with access to healthy fresh food, as part of their Healthy Choices campaign.
