For several years, SIRCH volunteers have gathered twice a month in Haliburton to make nutritious, tasty meals for low income families, seniors and others in the community who cannot afford to eat healthy food. Soon SIRCH will open a second community kitchen in Minden Hills. Please stay tuned for their launch date and time.
