We were saddened to hear of Sister Rosemarie Kugel's passing on November 10, 2020.
Sister Kugel was very involved and supportive of our mission here at the food bank, helping with our annual Food Blitz and assisting our board of directors for many years.
May she rest in peace.

We are seeking individuals to help out with a variety of tasks/shifts on a scheduled weekly basis:
- Volunteer shifts are a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 4 hours
- Must be able to commit to the day(s) you choose
- Must be able to lift and stand for long periods of time
Hunger Action Month is a nationwide campaign that takes place during
the month of September. Its purpose is to raise awareness of hunger in our
community, province and country.
Partners in Mission Food Bank will be sharing statistics all month on social media about food insecurity.
Thank you to our monthly donors!
Hunger is a daily struggle, our monthly donors have recognized this and enable us to better plan and support more families. If you are able, please consider making an online monthly gift at here.
Thank you for helping our neighbours in need.
Take care and please be safe.
Following the restrictions placed to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are postponing our 35th annual Food Blitz which had been scheduled for May 2nd.
Our Food Blitz each spring is an essential food drive for us, as it stocks up our shelves for the upcoming summer months when donations typically slow down. Need for the food bank is great, our future demand is unpredictable, dependant upon the length of the COVID-19 shutdown and what the economic recovery looks like.
Kingston’s Friends Feeding Friends providing groceries to Kingstonians affected by Covid-19
The Davies Charitable Foundation in partnership with the Partners in Mission Foodbank, No Frills Supermarkets, and a community of Kingston philanthropists, is pleased to announce Kingston’s Friends Feeding Friends which will provide over $500,000 worth of groceries to Kingstonians who have lost their income and are in financial distress due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Partners in Mission Food Bank is open.
For our clients:
In order to implement safe social distancing, clients will not enter the building for any reason, therefore our washroom is not available. Please dress for the elements!
At this time, for our afternoon grocery hamper pickup we will ask to see identification only. No signature required.
Clients will be met by staff at the front and directed to our grocery hamper pickup area one person at a time. Staff will then assist with groceries outside of the building.
