A friendly farm cart that helps people get out of their homes and out of the fire is coming to Hamilton.
The Friendly Farm Cart is being offered to farmers in Hamilton who are at risk and have a small family.
They’ll get free food and help with cleanup and help when they need to get back to work.
It’s part of a partnership between the Hamilton Food Bank and the Hamilton Fire Service.
“It’s a very simple concept and it’s a great idea and it would really be good to have a little bit of help with that, a little help in the form of food, maybe a little something to help out in the house,” said Debbie Wood.
She said she has an 11-year-old daughter and she needs a little extra help.
The farm cart will be offered from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will carry all the supplies.
It’s an easy thing to do.
The people in the cart know what they need and they’re there.
“We’re looking for a little more support from them, just being able to put the cart in a good location,” said Wood.
The friendly farm carts are the most common type of assistance on offer for the Hamilton food bank.
The Food Bank is currently offering the cart on a rotating basis for $20, and there are two different ways you can get involved:You can donate to the Hamilton Farmers Union through the Food Bank website.
You can volunteer to help with cleaning up after the fires or cooking and cleaning up.
The Hamilton Food Banks Community Service Centre will also be there.
