Thanks to the enormous generosity of our food industry partners: retailers, wholesalers, farmers, and our entire community of supporters, Hamilton Food Share was able to increase our food procurement operation from 2.85 million pounds to a record 3.35 million pounds of food raised in 2018, an 18% increase over the previous year!
This impressive figure is a direct result of the generosity of hundreds of donors donating high value food items like fresh produce, meat and dairy products, totaling 1.7 million pounds per year. 66% of the food we distribute is fresh or frozen!
Each day we distribute these nutritious food items among our member agencies and ultimately onto the tables of the over 12,600 individuals accessing food banks every month in Hamilton.
We always welcome new food donors; please call us at (905) 664 -9065. No food donation is too big!
