Hunger Action Month is a time for all communities across Canada to come together and learn about hunger, while advocating for change and supporting our neighbours.
The fourth theme of Hunger Action Month is DONATE.
Keep an eye on our social media for updates, and join in on the conversation! We want to hear what you have to say. Share our posts and help us inform everyone about food banks, food insecurity, and the Ottawa Food Bank.
Make sure you use the hashtag #HungerActionMonth
The Different Ways You Can Help by Donating
Make a Monetary DonationYou can help my making a donation to our cause by clicking the link below. Because we are able to obtain food in such large quantities and have amazing food industry partners and supporters, we can make your donation go further. This means that every dollar donated helps us deliver $5 of food to the community.
Become a Monthly Donor
You can also help my setting up a recurring donation to the Ottawa Food Bank to become a monthly donor to our cause. This is a great hassle-free way to ensure you are helping those less fortunate members in our community on a regular basis!

The bowl of cereal that fills a child’s stomach, the can of soup that warms an elderly person, the lunch that sustains the person working hard at finding employment—these are the situations that make the work we do so rewarding. Help the Ottawa Food Bank fight hunger by giving food.
Drop off your donation at one of our drop-off locations or at the Ottawa Food Bank.
Hold a Food/Fund Drive
You know that feeling you get when you donate to the Ottawa Food Bank? Why not share that feeling with your colleagues or friends by holding a food drive, fund drive, or fundraising event. There are many ways to do it – consider holding a physical food drive at the office or set up a virtual fundraiser to celebrate a special occasion. Not only will you be making a difference, but you’ll be having a lot of fun while you do it.
Food and fund drives, provide the Ottawa Food Bank with the necessary resources to sustain our programs and ensure that a supply of emergency food is available to those who may need it.
