About Partners in Mission Food Bank:

Founded in 1984, Partners in Mission Foodbank (PMF) is the collection/distribution facility for donated food for the Kingston area. Collected food is distributed to low-income families.


PMF runs a hamper donation program, which is its core function. Clients are interviewed to determine initial need.  They are then able to book appointments to receive food hampers. Each hamper contains a 3–5 day supply of food. In addition to this program, PMF distributes surplus food donations to over 20 hot-meal and shelter programs. These partner agencies do not depend on PMF for food shipments; rather, they use the surplus food to supplement their existing supply chains.


Currently, PMF distributes 55 hampers per working day. The charity estimates this to be 2,000 lbs or $4,000 worth of food.

Financial Review:

Administrative costs are 6% of revenue and fundraising costs are 8% of donations. PMF has funding reserves of $595k which cover the annual program costs 1.5 times excluding the cost of donated food or cover 30% of program costs including the cost of donated food.
