Most people in Kingston know that every Spring the Partners in Mission Food Bank has a food blitz!
It’s one of the ways they keep the shelves stocked throughout the year to help out those in need in our community.
In previous years, you received a brown paper bag with the newspaper, you filled it up, and volunteers came to pick it up from your house.
This year, they’re doing something different.
Volunteers will be at several grocery stores on April 30th collecting donations.
Sandy Singers from the Partners in Mission Food Bank stopped by to give us all the details and also let us know if demand is up at the food bank.
There’s also a snazzy video to further explain:
Where can you drop off donations on April 30th?
