There is a lot of pressure at this time of year to spend. Spend money on gifts, gatherings, increased expenses, and warm clothing. It is hard enough not being able to provide these things to your loved ones; but not being able to provide and afford food either is heartbreaking!
For this reason, each November, we call on YOU and challenge workplaces and groups across Ottawa to collect funds and non-perishable food for families in need as part of our Holiday Food Drive.
Every year, hundreds of community groups and work places come together during the holidays to raise much needed food and funds in support of the Ottawa Food Bank. With 90 per cent of our donations coming directly from the community, the Ottawa Food Bank depends on you and the generosity of our neighbours to keep up with the need in the city.
Your Holiday Food Drive can include a fundraiser and/or a food drive. It can be a one-day event or week long drive! We love the diversity and creativity groups come up with when showing their support. At the end of the day, regardless of how you collect your donations, please know you are helping families and individuals who need your support.
