About Hamilton Food Share
Hamilton Food Share is the hub of the Emergency Food Network within Hamilton, providing millions of pounds of nutritious food annually for local food banks and hot meal programs in neighbourhoods across the city.
Last year, we distributed almost 4 million pounds of nutritionally rich food, 75% of which was fresh or frozen, to help ensure that people living in poverty have access to healthy food for themselves and their families. We do this by receiving large-scale food donations and shipping them out to front-line service organizations each and every business day.
How your gift will be used
An incredible community of generous food donors including farmers, wholesalers, and retailers as well as thousands of local individuals run food drives or make financial contributions to help their neighbours struggling with hunger. Every $20 donated provides $100 in food to help feed the 13,000 local people who visit food banks each month – 5000 of whom are children.
No donation is too big or too small to make a difference — we truly need everyone because the need is so great in our community especially with so many people struggling with employment due to COVID closures. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to learn more about how you can help families facing food insecurity.
Donors can make a lasting and meaningful impact on their community and local people in need by remembering Hamilton Food Share in their Will.
