The process is officially open for Canadians to redeem their $25 Loblaws gift cards
Loblaws is offering Canadians a $25 gift card as a result of overcharging for the cost of bread products in their stores and other grocery stores across Canada. To register to receive your gift card, and to read all the details about eligibility and terms and conditions, please go to LoblawCard.ca.
If you will benefit from this help with your groceries, we encourage you to register today. If you know anyone who may need help with groceries – please pass along the information.
Many people have contacted us asking if we can accept these gift cards as a donation. First of all, thank you kindly to our supporters for thinking of us – we truly appreciate it. Secondly, yes – we can accept these as donations.
Options for donating
1) Pass along your card to us
If you’ve already signed up for your gift card, you’re welcome to stop by or mail your gift card to the Ottawa Food Bank. If you’re still in the process of registering for it, you can put our address as the mailing address, and Loblaw Companies will mail the card to us directly.

2) Accept your gift card, and make a monetary donation
We’ve seen a number of people online say they’ve signed up to get a gift card, and have made an equivalent donation to the Ottawa Food Bank. That is certainly an option. If you wish to donate money to us, you can do so online at ottawafoodbank.ca/donate.
3) Use your gift card to purchase and donate food
Many people love the thought of donating their family’s favourite items. You know your family’s favourite will end up on the dinner table of another deserving family in need. Please feel free to purchase healthy non-perishables with your gift card, and place them in the donation bin at your local Loblaw location.
What we’ll do with the gift cards
We are touched by this movement to donate these cards. Depending on the number of cards we receive, we can use them in a few different ways. We will either use them directly for our food purchases, provide them to our member food programs for their food purchases, or see that they get provided directly to clients.
