Culturally Flexible Food Options

Did you know that 250,000 lbs of the 3.35 million pounds of food you help us provide annually comes from deeply discounted bulk food purchases for which we can utilize our buying power to complement the food donations we receive each and every day from our generous donors?

Thanks to a gift from the Hamilton Community Foundation, Hamilton Food Share was able to purchase 3,400 lbs of green lentils, chick peas, and rice to be distributed across the emergency food network.

These staple food items are prepared and enjoyed across cultures and are in great demand at food banks. We are grateful to the Hamilton Community Foundation for recognizing the need for healthy and culturally flexible food options for individuals and families accessing food banks across our city.
