35th Annual Food Blitz Cancelled

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.

Monetary donations can be safely made directly through our website.

Our Food Blitz was to be held at 8 local grocery stores. Thank you to the following:

Grant’s No Frills - Division Street

Chris and Beth's No Frills – Coverdale Drive

Loblaws - Princess Street

Loblaws – Midland Avenue

Freshco – Princess Street

James' Valu-Mart – Gore Road

Metro – Gardiners Road

Food Basics – Hwy 15


Thank you to our incredible volunteers from Kingston Rotary, Kingston Real Estate, Kingston Health Science Centre, RBC and BMO who had planned to be working – we will need you later.

Thank you,


Dan Irwin

Executive Director
