Barakah Box is a food bank that is a project under Mishka Social Services based in Hamilton. We operate out of the Hamilton Mountain Mosque (1545 Stone Church Road East) on the first Saturday of every month. We serve 400+ families each month with staple food items that meet their dietary restrictions; halal or gluten-free for those who require it.
There is always opportunity for people to volunteer their time with Barakah Box on the first Saturday of every month. From checking in guests, registering them, assembling the food baskets and checking guests out with the appropriate food basket size there is something for every volunteer.
We start bright and early at 7:00 a.m. and finish at 2:00 p.m.
