Initiated by the vision of the Ancaster Ministerial Association and with support of all citizens, businesses, schools and community agencies.

All donations to be delivered to Hamilton’s major food agencies.

Wesley Urban Ministries 

Please continue to support and plan to participate in our 25th Ancaster Community Food Drive:

The need is great and together we can make this a successful effort.

We've started to make up our prize basket.

 A new kit from Wendy - called Fur.
We are given samples throughout the year and I have a stash of them. I've gone through my box and added to the prize basket.

Namaste Buddy Case in pale pink.

A Namaste Skinny Mini in Eggplant.

This skein came from Madelinetosh with no label on it. I can't sell it but I can give it away. It is tosh sock in the colour moonstone.

This is just the start of the prize basket. I have another huge box to go through at home. There are also donations coming from my suppliers - I'll post pictures as we receive more.

How can you win the basket? 

Bring non-perishable food items into the store by Friday March 3.

For every non-perishable food item you will get one ballot.

For a $10 donation you will get 10 ballots.
For a $25 donation you will get 30 ballots.

Live out of town? Call us and we can put a cash donation on your credit card. I can also send a paypal request. If you win, we'll mail the basket to you.

The most needed food items are
  • hot cereals of any kind
  • canned meats and fish
  • peanut butter
  • meat soups
  • canned or powder milk
  • baby food and formula (needs to have at least 8 weeks until expiry left on it)
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • canned pasta
  • dry pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • toiletries
In an effort to maximize the purchasing power of every dollar donated, the Organizing Committee has reached out to Hamilton Food Share who, through their connections with producers and suppliers and leveraged bulk purchasing power, can convert every dollar donated to the equivalent of 2.5 lbs of non-perishable food products.
If you can help it's greatly appreciated!
