Hamilton Back Clinic, located across from McMaster, has been a vital pillar in addressing Hamilton's most pressing community needs. 

After starting his practice in 2002, Dr. Anthony Lombardi (director of Hamilton Back Clinic), volunteered for Glenbrook Home Supports delivering hot meals to people who lacked access to proper nutrition. Seeing the impact of his contributions, the Hamilton Back Clinic launched its first initiative in 2005 - the Winter Coat Drive. Since then, the clinic has distributed a total of 21,000 coats to schools, providing children with proper winter attire to keep them warm through cold months and not miss school.

Now in 2023, the Easter Food Drive aims to continue the clinic's legacy of generosity. With over 20,000 people accessing food drives per month and nearly 100,000 people who are food insecure in Hamilton, the Hamilton Back Clinic urges people to join them in their mission for this upcoming Easter season.
