The Market Place, located at the Good Shepherd Venture Centre, is a self-serve Emergency Food and Clothing Program for individuals and families in need of support and assistance.
The open-concept setting invites clients to make their own choices from an array of food and clothing items. It is a much more efficient and dignified environment and includes a counselling centre to help break the cycle of poverty.
The Venture Centre, at 155 Cannon Street East, Hamilton, is accessible for individuals with mobility issues, has ample parking and is on the Cannon Street bus route.
It is a full-service community hub containing a public donation depot and the Market Place. Two large warehouses store food, clothing and household items, which are sorted by staff and volunteers and put in the Market Place.
