Emergency Food Services

Charlotte & Shane – Emergency Food Department Podcast


Neighbour to Neighbour Centre (N2N) began more than 30 years ago as a small food bank and was built on the fundamental principle of helping those in need on Hamilton Mountain.

Our food bank is the only emergency food provider on Hamilton Mountain. Our food programs have evolved into an indispensable part of our community’s social fabric. Neighbour to Neighbour works to improve the quality of life in our community by offering emergency food through 3 programs: Food Bank, Home Delivery and our Christmas Market program.

"…thank you … I was at my lowest point… and I am leaving with a full grocery cart…"
