Hunger Action Month is a time for all communities across Canada to come together and learn about food insecurity, while advocating for change and supporting our neighbours. Keep an eye on our social media for updates, and join in on the conversation! Make sure you use the hashtag #HungerActionMonth.
The fourth theme of Hunger Action Month is DONATE!
There are many different ways to donate and support your community:
MAKE A MONETARY DONATION
You can help my making a donation to our cause by clicking the link below. Because we are able to purchase food in such large quantities and have amazing food industry partners and supporters who contribute above and beyond, we can make your donation go further. This means that every dollar donated helps us deliver $5 of food to the community.
BECOME A MONTHLY DONOR
You can also help my setting up a recurring donation to the Ottawa Food Bank to become a monthly donor to our cause. This is a great hassle-free way to for you to help the community year round. There are certain times of the year when donations traditionally take a dip year after year. It is during those times that our month donors are increasingly important, as they provide guaranteed support during those times.
The bowl of cereal that fills a child’s stomach, the can of soup that warms an elderly person, the lunch that sustains the person working hard to provide for their family; these are all ways you help make a difference in the lives of others. Donate your or your family’s favourite healthy items today to make a difference tomorrow. You can drop off your donation at one of our drop-off locations or right to the Ottawa Food Bank (Monday to Friday, 8AM to 4PM – follow the signs around the far right side of the building).
HOLD A FUND / FOOD DRIVE
You know that feeling you get when you donate to the Ottawa Food Bank? Why not share that feeling with your colleagues or friends by getting them involved too! Hold a fund drive or a food drive! There are many ways to do it, and our Event Resources page has all the information and inspiration you need!
