Who We Are
Neighbours Helping Neighbours
Operating since 1990, Hamilton Food Share is the emergency food shipping and receiving hub and Emergency Food Systems Coordinator for the network of agencies we support in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
We provide industrial-scale food resources to hunger relief agencies, operating emergency food programs open to the public. The food equitably delivered to food banks and meal programs to ensure that people living in poverty have access to healthy food for themselves and their families.
We place a greater emphasis on nutritious food. We have greatly increased our capacity to receive, store, and distribute fresh/frozen food items, ensuring that all families who rely on emergency food programs have access to a variety of food options. We generally accept food that can be used to build healthy meals.
Most of the food comes is donated by our generous local food industry, including wholesalers and farmers. Some is purchased in bulk at deep discounts and the remainder comes from community food drives by local groups or at special events.
Working together toward a hunger-free community.
Every person has the right to safe and nutritious food.
Privacy and dignity are essential for everyone, particularly people struggling with poverty.
Volunteers and staff demonstrate integrity, fairness, and honesty.
Organizational partnerships must further our anti-hunger mission and be based on respect, trust, and openness.
Generosity from our community will be encouraged and celebrated.
