Outreach St. George’s Kingston (OSGK) has partnered with the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area to establish the Lunch by George Endowment Fund.
OSGK has provided hot meals and comfort to some of Kingston’s most disadvantaged citizens since 1985 through the Lunch by George program. Demand has skyrocketed recently due to the pandemic, and OSGK switched to a hot boxed lunch program that meets public health regulations.
The OSGK Board launched this endowment fund to provide a sustainable source of income to support the Lunch by George program each year, so that we are always there to provide a hot lunch to those in need. We hope to take advantage of the Community Foundation’s dollar-for-dollar match to kick-start the new fund. The Foundation will match all gifts received by December 31, 2021, of up to a total of $10,000.
