Ready? Set. SORT!
The Ottawa Food Bank’s 2nd Annual Food Sort Challenge, presented by Investors Group, was a great day and an even greater success.
As the teams started to pour through the Ottawa Food Bank doors, it was clear the event was going to be filled with kind-hearts, laughter, and enthusiasm.
Throughout the course of the day a total of 24 tons of food was sorted! Teams also collected pledges leading up to the October 18th event, and an amazing $16,133.07 was donated!
A big thank you is owed to the wonderful event sponsors. Thank you to our title sponsor, Investors Group as well as the box sponsor, Loeb Packaging Ltd and after-party sponsor, Thyme & Again.
Following the Food Sort Challenge, there was a wrap-up party where multiple prizes were awarded.
