541 Eatery & Exchange
541 Eatery & Exchange’s mission is to address the needs of the local Hamilton community in tangible ways. They provide delicious, nutritious meals affordable to all run by a team of volunteers. 541 works on a button system or a pay-it-forward system. These buttons are a type of currency. Each is worth $1 and can be purchased by customers from the cashier. The buttons go into the button jar and are used by others who can't afford a nutritious meal. Regardless of a person’s background or ability or inability to pay, all customers receive the same high quality treatment and food, all in the same place.

Speaking of Dogs Rescue
Speaking of Dogs Rescue has helped thousands of dogs since its inception. All dogs entering their rescue arm are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and have any and all their medical needs attended to. The majority of dogs (often seniors), are taken from shelters but they also help any dog in need when space and finances permit. Dogs are lovingly cared for in foster homes until a suitable forever placement is found.
The Food4Kids program was inspired by a 10 year old boy, who waited outside the locked doors of a school breakfast program. The program was to start at 8:15 and the child stood outside at 7:15 in the dark, in the cold and alone. He explained he had not had any food on the weekend and was hungry. Could he please have some food? Their mission is to provide healthy food to elementary school students from at-risk, low-income or disadvantaged homes with limited or no food during weekend periods and summer months. They believe child and youth hunger is a community responsibility and by working together we can provide a solution-based program that addresses, responds to and eventually can eliminate child hunger in our shared community.
Boys and Girls Clubs
Boys and Girls Clubs provides a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life. The funding from the support from Cars 4 Cures can feed 150 children an after school snack for a month, or feed 25 children dinner each evening for two weeks.
For more than 60 years, Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton have been at the forefront of empowering and encouraging children and youth to live healthy lives. Over 4,000 children and youth living in Hamilton, count on Boys and Girls Clubs for guidance and support. By providing young people with access to structured, enriching recreational and social programs outside of school, their peer relationships, emotional health and academic performance can flourish.

The Clubs take a preventative approach to tackling a broad range of critical issues facing young people today including: fitness, education, nutrition, safety, youth employment, violence, sexuality, homelessness and substance abuse.
