With a rising demand due to the pandemic, nutritious meals are needed now more than ever before
As part of our commitment to building safe communities, we feel a deep responsibility to energize life and support Ontario organizations to overcome serious challenges to meet urgent and emerging local needs.
Due to rising needs from the COVID-19 pandemic, Kawartha Food Share and its member agencies have served an increased number of clients on a monthly basis over the past year. At the same time, similar to many other organizations, Kawartha Food share is experiencing a decrease in donations during the summer months even though demand remains high.
We’re proud to work with Kawartha Food Share. Together, we are helping build safe communities by ensuring that residents in the Peterborough and surrounding county have safe and reliable access to nutritious food items.
Kawartha Food Share assists over 8,900 community members by distributing more than 100,000 pounds of emergency food in the city and county of Peterborough each year. With Hydro One’s support, the organization will be able to purchase $150,000 worth of food to assist in keeping food bank shelves well supplied.

Ashlee Aitken, General Manager of Kawartha Food Share, tells us about the impact the pandemic has had on the community.
"We are so thrilled to receive this very generous support from Hydro One. The past year has been challenging for our local food banks, clients, and the many staff and volunteers who work tirelessly providing emergency food to those who need it most in Peterborough and County."
