Thanks for Giving Food Drive

Keep an eye out for our wonderful volunteers at your neighbourhood grocery store on September 30th.
Volunteers will be out encouraging you to give generously as we head into the cold months and kick off the holiday season.

This food drive is especially important for the Ottawa Food Bank, as we replenish our shelves and get ready for a time of year that is traditionally busier for emergency food programs across the city.

Volunteers Needed:

Find a timeslot and location that works for you, and sign up! Three hours of your time makes a world of difference to us and the people for whom we provide.[shortcode_button type=”default” align=”left” target=”_blank” link=”https://ofb.volunteerhub.com/events/index?format=Calendar&filter=37141″ icon=”none”]Sign Up Today![/shortcode_button]
