Kingston Foodbank provides three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis. Food is donated locally from schools, churches, businesses and individuals.
What they use the grant for:
They have used their grant to upgrade their out-dated IT system (they partner with over 110 front line agencies), help fund a post for one day a week to oversee the direction of Kingston Foodbank, and set up a regular communication with the stakeholders. Additional funds will help fund a support worker and enable Kingston Foodbank to open another collection point so that they can be open five days a week.
