EMERGENCY FOOD PROGRAM

Good Shepherd Venture Centre
155 Cannon Street East
Hamilton  ON  L8L 2A6
905.972.9485

Director: Michael Troskot

The Good Shepherd Venture Centre is modeled after a traditional grocery store where emergency food and clothing are easily accessible for clients. Unlike most emergency food programs, visitors choose what they want from our Marketplace. With the help of staff and volunteers, they push a grocery cart and shop the aisles for food, clothing and personal items.

If you have questions about the food & clothing program, please call us at 905.972.9485. Due to high call volumes, we have a general voicemail mailbox. Please leave a message and someone will get back to you within 24 hours.  All new registrations must sign up in person. Registration hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 am – 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.- 2:00 p.m.

 

Grocery and program hours are Monday to Friday, 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. 

The Christmas Marketplace will run from Monday November 21, 2022 – Friday December 23, 2022.
