Lionhearts to surpass 250,000 meals served this friday

Kingston, ON – With the warmer weather returning, Lionhearts Inc.’s Street Project meal program’s downtown location will be relocating from Stages Night Club back to McBurney Park on April 21.

The program was active throughout the winter and continued serving hundreds of Kingstonians in need through the colder months. In the coming days, the Street Project will pass 250,000 meal kits served.

“At Lionhearts, we have seen many incredible people help keep our meals-to-go program alive,” said Travis Blackmore, executive director. “Between our financial supporters, our team of chefs, and our teams who serve these meals seven nights a week, we have seen the vulnerable in our community be fed nutritious meals during a long season of unknowns and difficulty.”

The colder weather did not keep hungry Kingstonians away, as the Street Project hit new highs for meals distributed during the winter. In recognition for its accomplishments through the pandemic, Lionhearts was recently recognized with the Kingston Rotary Centennial Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) Certificate of Appreciation.

“We would like to firstly thank all those who have donated to our COVID-19 Street Project,” adds Blackmore. “You have made an impact in the lives of many in our community, and we are grateful for your help. Your donations help us continue to prepare life-giving meals seven days a week for those in our community who need them.”

Funds are still urgently needed to help those struggling during COVID-19. For more information on the Street Project, please visit: lionhearts.ca/covid-19-street-project
