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.
In previous years we have collected between 25,000 – 30,000 pounds of food. We were uncertain how we would do, as this was a first for us, and we are in the midst of a pandemic. This year we successfully raised $81,495.67 ! Our goal had been $50,000. We are overwhelmed with the support we have received, and we are proud to be a part of such a generous and giving community. We are confident that we will be able to purchase the food we need, and support our Kingston neighbours in need for the summer months.
A HUGE Thank you to the Kingston Community for making this a success!
