Michael started volunteering with Partners in Mission Food Bank in early 1994 while working contract work at the Kingston Psychiatric Hospital. At the time, he was looking for a way to increase his community involvement, make new friends, stay mentally and physically fit, and to make a difference in many lives- and he has!! Michael was a perfect match with our organization.
Due to lockdown restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we were forced to cancel our annual Food Blitz for the second year in a row, and transition to a Virtual event. As Kingston’s food bank, our annual Food Blitz has been an essential food drive for us every spring since 1984.
Following the current lockdown restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are cancelling our annual Food Blitz for the second year in a row.
Wishing a warm and Happy Volunteer Appreciation week to our team of amazing volunteers.
Thank you so much for the immeasurably valuable work you have done for our charity! No words are enough to thank you for sacrificing your comforts for the betterment of others during these challenging times.
We cannot thank Kingstonians along with Kingston’s businesses, groups and organizations enough for your support in 2020.
We received record monetary and food donations. THANK YOU!
2020 was a challenging year for everyone and we anticipate that in 2021 we will experience one of our highest demand years ever.
We wish everyone well in the New Year and please be safe.
