The Back Kitchen is a restaurant on Amherst Island in Loyalist Township. Manager Terry McGinn explains how CFFLA funding was used to purchase an ice cream freezer in 2016 and later a kitchen range. Board Chair Lorna Willis explain how funding was used to make the restaurant accessible.
Pine Meadow Nursing Home in Northbrook applied for Community Grant funding for the purchase of two accessible tables in the resident dining room. Each table allows four residents to individually adjust table height and angle, achieving optimal comfort for residents in wheelchairs or those requiring special requirements. Both residents and staff are grateful for the new tables that alleviate congestion in the dining room.
