The dates of the LEX generally fall during Hunger Awareness Week in Canada. Given our strong connection to agriculture and the abundance of food in Canada, we decided not to just raise “awareness” about hunger but to help reduce hunger in our community by partnering with Kawartha Lakes Food Source on two events.
For WEDNESDAY ONLY, you will be able to purchase 10 rides for $10 if you bring a non-perishable food item to the ticket kiosk in the Midway. This is an even better deal than the Twoonie Rides Night, and you’re helping stock the shelves of the Kawartha Lakes Food Source. That makes it a doubly good deal!
The second part of our partnership is that we will be collecting non-perishable food items or cash on your way in to the LEX Party! on the Friday of the LEX. Kawartha Lakes Food Source Volunteers will be at each gate with collection boxes. As you are coming in to party with James Barker Band, please remember the less fortunate in the community and bring a non-perishable food item.
