The Hand Up Project

Join an Amazing Community of Monthly Donors
 

Since the beginning of 2022, we have seen a 21% increase in demand for food hampers. The pandemic and rising inflation have created a situation where many are experiencing financial hardship and are faced with making tough decisions – like the choice between paying rent or buying food. As we do not receive government funding, we rely on Kingston area businesses, groups, and individuals to fulfill our mission.
 

About the Program
 

When you join the Hand Up Project, you’re helping to relieve hunger 365 days of the year. Monthly giving is a simple, efficient, and convenient way for you to contribute to Partners in Mission Food Bank and help provide food to those struggling with food insecurity. Feed fellow Kingstonians all year long by becoming a monthly donor. It's not a handout, it's a hand up.
