Loyalist Collegiate and Vocational Institute (LCVI) is the newest school to join the Good Food Stands initiative across Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington to provide improved food access for individuals and households in the region.

The initiative offers the community a variety of fresh produce at reduced prices one day each month. No appointment is needed and the schedule and location of each Good Food Stand can be found at goodfoodstand-kfla.ca.

Five Good Food Stand locations have been designated in KFL&A at Sydenham High School, Napanee District Secondary School, Bayridge Secondary School, LCVI and Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School.

Local school boards and their unions will also contribute by arranging for program delivery and support from school volunteers at the schools in the area. Kingston Community Health Centres will facilitate program delivery at each school between 3-5:30 p.m. one afternoon each month during the year. 

The Good Food Stand initiative is supported by the KFL&A Food Access Advisory Committee and co-funded by the City of Kingston, United Way of KFL&A, and the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area. 

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
