As we enter into the third year of the pandemic, many are reflecting on the changes it has brought about. We have all had to adjust our day-to-day, and that is no different for us at the Ottawa Food Bank. Our vision is healthy, accessible, sustainable food for all. We continually learn and adapt in order to ensure people across Ottawa have access to the food they need to live healthy, more fulsome lives.
Adapting to these changes to get food to those who need it most would not be possible without the generosity of our community. It is through working in partnership with our retail partners, community members, and local businesses that we are able to achieve our vision. Funding from grantors also goes a long way to execute plans that enable food to be distributed to over 100 food programs across the city.
Recently, the Ontario Trillium Foundation has been a generous funder of the Ottawa Food Bank for several innovative projects. We are so appreciative of their continued support for projects that inform how we do our work.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation has helped us support over 44,000 people every month through these difficult times.

These projects supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation allow us to ensure that we can provide continuous care while serving the community in the best way possible. Their partnership helps us continue to make evidence-based decisions, so we can work as effectively as possible. The foundation we’ve built with their support strengthens our network, allowing us to continue creating thoughtful programs that get food to those who need it most in Ottawa.
