OC Transpo Annual Christmas Food Drive


Time for a food drive that is as old as the Ottawa Food Bank itself!

This is always a fun food drive for the Ottawa Food Bank – and they’re at it again for the 32nd year in a row!
OC Transpo will be parking buses outside participating Loblaws, Superstores, No Frills, and Your Independent Grocers locations across Ottawa with the goal of packing them full of food! Stop by to donate on Saturday, December 3rd between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
New this year: if you can’t make it to one of the participating grocery stores, feel free to donate through the Virtual Food Drive, online!
