The Hammer Responds to COVID-19

In the last month, Hamilton Food Share has seen such an outpouring of support from people just wanting to step in to help their neighbours in need. From dropping off food donations & mailing in cheques to sharing our social media posts and news articles about the situation here in Hamilton, please know that we simply could not do this work without you.

We are so grateful for your generosity at this critical time. 

Local businesses like ArcelorMittal Dofasco, Stresscrete Group, the Hamilton Community Foundation, and many companies and kind individuals have stepped forward with meaningful support.Thank you for demonstrating your community leadership and compassion for Hamiltonians who rely on food banks and hot meal programs.

We appreciate being supported by incredibly strong and resilient individuals and organizations which against all odds, continue to feed hungry and vulnerable members of our community. We are also receiving promise of help from all three levels of government in the form of food, people, and financial support. Please know that we will utilize every resource available to help the people of Hamilton. 

One very practical example is our generous community partner Tim Hortons who has helped us with donations of supplies so that the hardworking folks at the First Start Cafe run by Wesley Urban Ministries have more supplies to help shift the daily hot meal program into a to-go meals to be safely distributed out of the Wesley Day Centre. Tim Horton’s donated takeout meal containers and various healthy food items like turkey, cauliflower soup, and bread to help our  member agencies continue to feed hungry Hamiltonians.
