National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30th marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

This day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities. We must confront the truth and discomfort resulting from Canada’s actions to participate in reconciliation.

At the Ottawa Food Bank, we are committed to learning from Indigenous knowledge holders and community organizations on topics such as Indigenous food sovereignty to continue challenging colonial ideas and practices. We encourage you to read the 94 Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Committee of Canada and recognize your role in the work that needs to be done.
