    New *Virtual* Local Food Hub in Kingston, Ontario

    by modernlocavore, about 2 months ago

    Modern Locavore, a Canadian registered not for profit, was founded in 2020 by two locavores looking to making it easier for their fellow community members to connect with locally produced food.

    Love local food? Get involved by checking our Modern Locavore's website (https://www.modernlocavore.ca/), or give them a like on... Continue reading

    Witnessed a heartfelt donation

    by ampl-anni, 4 months ago

    I was picking up my prescriptions (carefully!) at the drug store the other day when a gentleman came in and donated a large grocery bag full of masks. I assumed, from his presentation, that he may have been some kind of trades-person. He was very humble, asked if they were needed by the pharmacy staff and they gratefully accepted the donation as they too are in the queue for the shortage. A kind deed by just an ordinary person...that's what it's going to take.
