YOUR DONATION PROVIDES HAMILTON CHILDREN WITH THE TOOLS TO THRIVE & GROW
Food4Kids generates its funds through donations or one-time grants and is not in receipt of sustainable community funding. It has been through the generosity of our community that we have been able to accomplish so much in such a short period of time.
Since 2012, we have grown from 3 schools feeding 65 kids to facilitating programs in 76 schools (including high schools) providing a healthy food supply for nearly 1,600 children each weekend and support throughout the summer months. It is because of YOU, we have touched the lives of so many children. There is more work to be done. We need your support and there are so many ways to help.

TESTIMONIALS SAY IT ALL
"We were homeless. I called Food4Kids. They helped us immediately with food."
WITHOUT FOOD4KIDS, MY KIDS WOULD GO HUNGRY
"My husband has been out of work for 6 months & even with a college degree, he apply for jobs at fast-food restaurants. We lost our house & now live in a 3 bedroom apartment we can barely afford. I make minimum wage & feel as though I need to take on another job to help make ends meet. My 3 kids receive Food4Kids backpacks. At first, I was ashamed. My embarrassment has turned to gratitude. Without Food4Kids, my kids would be going hungry."
