Honoring the memory of Carol Krames z’l

The food bank was renamed Carol’s Cupboard in memory of Carol Krames z’l, former Executive Director of Jewish Family Services and co-founder of the Kosher Food Bank, along with her husband, Lester Krames. 

The Hamilton Kosher Food Bank is a staple in our community. It is Jewish Hamilton’s response to food insecurity, and has been providing assistance – in the form of kosher food items, PPE, personal hygiene items, and sanitary supplies – for more than fifteen years.
