Hunger Awareness Week comes at a time when some in our community are facing a tighter squeeze on their budgets with the cost of hydro going up.
FoodShare Hamilton’s Joanne Santucci says the situation becomes gut wrenching when it impacts on children.
She says 37 per cent of those in Hamilton who need emergency food support are children.
Santucci says people can donate food items to a food bank or even better are cash donations that FoodShare can stretch five fold.
That can be done at “Feed the Hammer” dot com.
