This holiday season, Hamilton Elementary will again be supporting Richmond families by collecting online donations for the Richmond Food Bank.

The Richmond Food Bank is a dynamic hub that connects people, food, and services that are essential to health and well-being the hallmark of a caring community. The Richmond Food Bank gives healthy and nutritionally-balanced food to more than 2200 people in a typical week, providing Richmond residents with healthy food choices and connecting our clients to services that address the root causes of poverty.


With cash donations:

  • For every $1 the food bank collects they can distribute about $7 worth of food (based on 2022 data)
  • 55% of our clients are temporary users, most of whom are suffering through a crisis
  • 32% of our clients are children
  • 30% could be self-sufficient, but have cost of living concerns
  • 15% are long-term users with multiple barriers to employment, including chronic illness, mental health problems, or disabilities
  • Roughly 4% are transients and have no fixed address
  • 230 people volunteer every week; in addition, many groups volunteer with us on a weekly, monthly, or yearly basis

If you are able, please consider making an online donations between Monday, December 5th and December Friday 22nd.

Thank you for your support!
