Have you received home delivery from a food program? We want to hear from you!
In March 2020 – in response to the COVID-19 pandemic – the Ottawa Food Bank and several of its member agencies launched home delivery programs, designed to offer food security support those in the Ottawa community who were unable to safely visit their local and emergency food banks in person.
Two years on, there remains a clear and present need for reliable home deliveries in Ottawa, which the various home delivery programs across the city have continued to adapt and evolve to meet. Now, the Ottawa Food Bank is looking to see a centralized home delivery service to support food security agencies across Ottawa within the mandate of a suitable organization.
To assist in this process, the Ottawa Food Bank would like to hear your thoughts on the existing food bank home delivery services available, ideas for improvement or adaptation of the system, learnings and success stories from similar community resources, and your opinions on what makes an organization suitable to host such a program.
