Be the Recipe for Change

Help us provide a meal to the women who call YWCA Hamilton’s Transitional Living program home.

YWCA Hamilton does not receive government funding to provide meals for the 65 women who live in our Transitional Living Program, which means many residents stand in line at food banks and look to other free or low cost food sources to eat every day. Facing daily hunger creates barriers for women as they try to find employment and affordable housing.

With your help, we can provide the women who live at YWCA Hamilton’s Transitional Living Program a healthy and nutritious meal through YWCA’s Be the Recipe for Change. This unique program operates through our social enterprise café, At the Table, and provides healthy meals to the women who call YWCA Hamilton home. In addition to receiving safe, supportive housing, the women residing in Transitional Living gain access to employment and training opportunities through YWCA’s Employment Resource Centre, as well as the At the Table Café.

Last year, 5,525 individual meals were enjoyed and shared by the 65 women residing in Transitional Living. Each of these meals was generously prepared by the 500+ supporters of YWCA’s Be the Recipe for Change.

Experience Be the Recipe for Change

Gather your friends and help us cook a meal for the 65 women who call YWCA Hamilton home.

For a tax-deductible donation of $400, you and five of your friends will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive cooking experience, learning tips and tricks from a professional chef. Your session will also include a tour of our facilities where you will learn about the YWCA Hamilton’s overall mission to support women, girls and families in our community.

Want to help but aren’t keen on cooking? Please consider making a donation of $300 to adopt a meal, in lieu of participating in the cooking session. All meal planning and cooking will be done by our incredible staff from At the Table, while also providing a training opportunity for the women who call YWCA Hamilton home.
