Hamilton Food share is set to receive over 400 truck loads of premade hampers from Feed Ontario. They will be coming in waves over the next 4 weeks. They will take up at least 8,000 square feet of space. This is why we are so thrilled with our new local community partner ED Modular. They are lending a hand with their warehouse in Stoney Creek by donating 10,000 sq ft of their warehouse space temporarily to facilitate the safe offloading and storage of each truck load.

“We love to help the communities that we work and build in,” says Xavier Toby, Director at ED Modular,  “Donating our space to support Hamilton’s food banks was an easy decision as every little bit counts during these tough times.”

As Mayor Fred Eisenberger states, “This is an excellent example of non-profits, government partners, and businesses working together to provide much-needed assistance to our communities.”

Premade hampers will be distributed by the emergency food network through their many hunger relief programs.
