Over 60 free meals will be given away in Kapuskasing.

Leader of the Youth Rooted Ministry Sarah Coombs says Friday’s Pop Up Kitchen event is simply to give back to the local community.

Coombs says the event will not only feature free meals to be given away, but free clothing as well.

She says the girls from rooted youth are the ones who came up with the idea to host the annual kitchen event last year.

Coombs says they want to meet the needs of everyone, as in, all members of the community are welcome.

The Pop Up Kitchen will take place at 13 Ash Street on Friday beginning at 5:30pm and running until 7:00pm.
