Honoured to receive Outstanding Volunteer Program award

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Thank you to Volunteer Ottawa for recognizing the Ottawa Food Bank’s volunteer program with the Outstanding Volunteer Program award at the 2019 VOscars.

This is truly an honour, as volunteers are so important to us at the Ottawa Food Bank. We work with approximately 3,000 amazing people every year who give so generously of their time. We could not do what we do with out them. Their hard work equates to the same number of hours as over seven full-time staff members!

Over the years, our volunteer program has evolved and grown in ways we didn’t know possible. This is truly thanks to the incredible effort and dedication of our Volunteer Coordinator, JoAnne Turple. JoAnne – thank you for all you do. Your hard work is noticed by staff and volunteers a like; we truly appreciate your enthusiasm and leadership.

THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers. You make what we do possible. You make helping the community possible. This award is shared with you for your kindness and generosity.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_media_grid grid_id=”vc_gid:1555598869936-07b2f30b-ac9f-9″ include=”19360,19361,19362″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
