Most recently, through collaboration with food recovery networks FoodMesh.ca, FoodRescue.ca and many food warehouse and food manufacturers, the program has delivered over a hundred of thousands of pounds of valuable food to inner-city school children, low income families, seniors and homeless each month in partnership with local food producers, distributors and community agencies.
LCS Covid-19 Community Caring Drive will continue partnering with generous corporates, food warehouses, local food assistance groups, food distribution hubs to distribute much needed food as well as personal protection equipment to help people in need in our community.
