For the first time in 4 years, Food Sort Challenge is back!

Food Sort Challenge, presented by Mondeau Bathroom and Kitchen, a division of Boone Plumbing, is one of the Ottawa Food Bank’s signature events. We are excited to announce the return of this team-building event, which will be held at the Aberdeen Pavilion on Friday, March 24, 2023!

Food Sort Challenge is a fast-paced competition, where over 50 teams of up to 10 people compete to see who can sort 1000 pounds of food the fastest! Groups can expect fun sorting challenges, high-energy activities and good company throughout the day.

The day attracts more than 50 teams from various industries and community groups. We invite you to join the fun and be a part of one of Ottawa’s most unique events!
