Fill Plates Food Drive 2022

It’s time for our Fill Plates Food Drive!

Spring is on its way, which means it’s time to make sure our shelves stay stocked and that we’re able to continue to Fill Plates through the spring and summer months. This is our LAST major food drive until October and it’s our FIRST Fill Plates Food Drive since 2020, due to pandemic lockdowns and restrictions! We are so excited to see this food drive event return and we need your help to make it a great success!

#OttawasBestVolunteers will be out at participating grocery store locations from 10AM until 2PM during the food drive on Saturday, April 16, 2022. Volunteers will be handing out donation bags to help make donating quick and easy! Participating stores will also have pre-packed donation bags for your convenience. We encourage you to donate your favorite items – but to please consider healthy choices when donating.

A list of our most needed items can be found by clicking here!

Thank you to our Grocery Store partners Metro and Loblaw for their continued support.
