Resources for Food Services
A partnership of community groups formed to provide meals to families once Kingston City schools were closed, launched a food security hotline in conjunction with the City of Kingston. Anyone in need of food within the Kingston City School District can call (888) 316-0879 at any time to be entered into a growing database to receive prepared food or grocery delivery. The hotline is staffed by English and Spanish speakers, and will soon offer K’iche. Those interested in volunteering for the hotline and/or food delivery and preparation can sign up here.
