About Partners in Mission Food Bank:

Founded in 1984, Partners in Mission Foodbank (PMF) is a food distribution centre for the Kingston area. It collects monetary and food donations and nourishes families through its food hamper program with surplus provisions being donated to over twenty local hot meal and shelter programs in the Kingston area.

The hamper donation program is Partners in Mission’s main program. Clients are interviewed to determine initial need.  They are then able to book appointments to receive food hampers. Each hamper contains a 7-day supply of food. The food in each hamper is predetermined and contains fresh milk, eggs, fruits and vegetables, as well as many other food items. Baby supplies and pet food are often also available at the food bank. 

Partners in Mission reports that F2016 was its busiest year yet, serving 12,000 hampers, which represented 252,000 meals provided to 6,695 individuals. This reflects a 3% increase in service from 2015, assisting many new single people and government-sponsored refugees as well. The charity states that a majority of the clients it sees are single people.
