2022 Food Blitz Wrap Up

After a two-year COVID hold, our 2022 Food Blitz day was April 9th and Partners in Mission Food Bank was able to collect 26,400 lbs towards their 30,000 lb goal. In a press release, the Food Bank stated it is very happy with this result, given the food price increases families have been facing. As Kingston’s food bank, their annual Food Blitz has been an essential food drive for us every spring since 1984.

 

The Food Bank also had a goal of $60,000 for the month of April. It stated it is pleased to announce that it received $51,904 in donations. Although it was short of their goal, the Food Bank is  pleased with the result.

The Food Bank also expressed gratitude to 9 grocery stores:

Grant’s No Frills - Division Street Chris & Beth’s No Frills – Coverdale Drive

Loblaws - Princess Street Loblaws – Midland Avenue

Freshco – Princess Street Van Wart’s Your Independent Grocer – Gore Rd

Food Basics – Hwy 15 Metro – Gardiners Road

Metro – Bayridge Drive

It also extended gratitude to volunteers from:

Kingston Rotary groups, Kingston and Area Real Estate Association, Kingston Health Sciences Centre, RBC, BMO, Kingston City Police Volunteers, Secura Financial, CFB Kingston, Holy Cross Secondary, Queen’s Islamic Relief, as well as numerous individuals. 

Partners in Mission Food Bank has been helping their Kingston neighbours in need for almost 38 years. They do not receive government or agency funding, and we rely solely on our community for food and financial support.
