support hjfs food security programs

Let all who are hungry come and eat… 

At a time when 1 in 7 Canadians are food insecure, every dollar you donate goes directly into our Food Security Programs, including Carol’s Cupboard: The Hamilton Kosher Food Bank, Community Gardens, Hot Meals, and more.

Together, we are working to:

  • Provide a strong Jewish response to food insecurity
  • Ensure 90+ families per year do not go hungry
  • Distribute more than 30,000lbs of kosher food annually to the vulnerable
  • Carry additional wellness items including shampoo, toothpaste, soap, toilet paper, and sanitary napkins
  • Grow fresh produce and herbs in our local community gardens, in partnership with Temple Anshe Sholom, Adas Israel Synagogue, Grace Lutheran Church, and Dundas Valley Sunrise Rotary Club
  • Provide delivery of food items to those who are immobile or forced to physically distance
  • Advocate for the importance of kosher food security in Hamilton, Burlington, and beyond

Each year it takes $85,000 to run these programs. We rely on community support, from people like you, to make sure that no one in need is turned away

Every dollar donated is put towards making sure no one in our community goes hungry.
