Thank you for Giving on Tuesday

What came after Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday, which has been observed annually since 2012, is a day dedicated to giving back.

The Ottawa Food Bank, in partnership with our 112 member agencies across the city, collectively provide access to food for tens of thousands of people each month experiencing food insecurity. This Giving Tuesday, we set our sights high on a big goal: raising enough money to fill 1,500 refrigerators.

As the hours went by and our donation thermometer grew, we received an overwhelming amount of support throughout the day. The incredible generosity of our community, combined with Sobeys matching gift challenge, helped us fill…

2,110+ fridges filled with 7 days of healthy food for a family of 4! That’s over 8,450 people directly supported!

THANK YOU to everyone who donated and shared the word! The success of this Giving Tuesday wouldn’t be possible without your incredible support this giving season.

To our Giving Tuesday partner, Sobeys:
Thank you for encouraging donations by contributing a $10,000 matching gift! This contribution allowed donations to have 2X the impact. We are so grateful for your continuous support!
