Beautiful generosity from Metro

We are  honoured to have the support of the hard working managers and staff at Metro grocery stores across the city.

Metro continues to go above and beyond to help our community and neighbours in need. They not only participate in food drives, sell pre-packed donation bags, and have Ottawa Food Bank donation cages in their stores for their customers, but they also make significant contributions themselves!

During our 2017-2018 fiscal year, Metro donated 1,116,425 pounds of food to the Ottawa Food Bank. An incredible 533,800 pounds of that total was fresh food, including fruits and vegetables, meat, and diary.

Donations and support from grocery stores like Metro mean so much to us, our community food program partners, and their clients. Metro donated well over half of the total received from grocery store chains last fiscal. This is a remarkable contribution.

THANK YOU to everyone at Metro for your continued support and enthusiasm. You are incredible leaders in our community.

    1. Good morning Angela,

      Please call 2-1-1. They will be able to tell you where to go for your Christmas Extras as well as let you know about any toy programs that are available in the city.
      211 is an excellent referral resource to use when looking for social supports. They have a wide range of knowledge about what is available in the city.
