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.
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.

- 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.
