GivingTuesday 2023

GivingTuesday is here!  

GivingTuesday, which has been observed annually since 2012, is the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is a day dedicated to giving back.

This day kicks off the gift-giving season for many of us. Join us in filling 2,000 fridges today, while giving back to your Ottawa community and celebrating the true spirit of the holidays.

As food prices skyrocket, we are seeing more need in our community than ever. The Ottawa Food Bank helps our neighbours by providing healthy, fresh food through 112 food programs across the city.  

If you found some good deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, consider paying it forward to help ensure access to food for children and families in need. A gift of just $48 can provide enough food to fill a fridge for a family of four, for a day. $336 fills a family’s fridge for a whole week! 

There are so many people in need of food throughout the holiday season. Thanks to Empire Company, Ltd.and their generosity, your gift will have 2X the impact this GivingTuesday, as 1 full fridge becomes 2!*  

Help us meet our goal by donating today!

*Empire Company Limited will match donations made to GivingTuesday Fill-A-Fridge MATCHING GIFT Challenge to a maximum of $15,000 on November 28, 2023.
