Ottawa Food Bank Events

Donate food, funds, or both. Get your friends to join the fun.

Hold A Food/Fund Drive

Food drives, fund drives and fundraising events 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.


We encourage you to throw your own food/fund drive or fundraising event in support of the Ottawa Food Bank, and our Toolkits provide you with materials to help you promote it!
