2020 Fundraiser: Feeding Our Future
Hosted by the Chinese Canadian Association of Kingston and District
Please join us for a fabulous evening of dining, dancing and fun at the Feeding Our Future fundraising event on Saturday, March 28, 2020, starting at 6:00pm. The event will be at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, 588 Division Street, Kingston. Tickets are $75 each and are available at The Food Sharing Project office, or online (click here). See the poster below for more details.
The Food Sharing Project delivers nutritious food to 88 schools within the city of Kingston and the counties of Frontenac, and Lennox and Addington. As a Student Nutrition Program provider, we receive core funding from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services as well as from local and national granting organizations, such as the United Way and Presidents Choice Children’s Charity. But there is always a shortfall and we depend on fundraising to make up the difference.
Last year, we fed 16,000 students a total of 758,000 breakfasts, lunches and snacks. That’s almost half of the elementary and secondary students in KFL&A!
This year, the Chinese Canadian Association of Kingston and District is hosting Feeding Our Future, a dinner, dance and silent auction on March 28, 2020. CCAKD is generously donating all proceeds to support our programs. Local businesses and the school staffs, school councils and Board staff of the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin-Lakeshore Catholic District School Board are being approached to provide donations of items suitable for the silent auction. In addition to a great evening, we will generate much needed funds.
