DID YOU KNOW?

The Ottawa Food Bank grows fresh produce on our own 8-acre farm (donated to us by Tom Black and his family of Black Family Farm) near Stittsville? This farm plays an important role in helping us deliver such a high proportion of fresh food to over 100 agency partners. In 2021, we planted 20 crops and harvested over 167,605 lbs of fresh food! The Adopt A Crop Program also raised an incredible $55,000 in it’s first year. THANK YOU to all of our Adopt A Crop sponsors for helping us achieve these amazing targets!

Adopt a Crop, presented by Mondeau Bathroom & Kitchen, invites local businesses to get involved with our community harvest. Each Adopt a Crop Ambassador will choose a crop and “champion” it over the course of the 2022 growing season. Our Ambassadors will also have access to a full season of exciting programming, including onsite community harvest volunteer shifts, virtual events, seasonal recipes and monthly updates straight from the farm!
