The federal government gave an inner-city community kitchen $70,000 for repairs today.
A news release said the funding will fix and upgrade the Knox Centre community kitchen in the basement of Knox United Church.
The centre provides programs and training for community groups and received the money for repairs from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.
"Unforeseen costs are perhaps inevitable when renovating a building that is 100 years old," Knox Centre co-ordinator Natasha Ross said in a press release.
"Because of the generous support, this kitchen will be able to provide the base for new Canadians to develop small businesses and co-operatives, and the community can gather for feasts, cooking lessons and food handling training."
