Connecting community in the pursuit of food justice. We prioritize sustainable access to locally-grown food for Black and Indigenous, racialized, and disabled communities. Formerly known as CareMongering: Hamilton Response to COVID-19.

Organizational Pillars

Mutual aid: coordinating a centralized delivery system connecting community members with free food and supplies delivered to their door steps at no cost and a no-questions-asked basis.


Building capacity: delivering workshops and programming aimed at skill-sharing and empowering community members to grow and cultivate their own food.


Localized relationships: distributing locally grown food throughout the community, prioritizing small-scale farms and other food providers.
