Thank You! OC Transpo / Loblaw Christmas Food Drive 2023

Today, we want to say a huge THANK YOU to OC TranspoLoblaw, the City of Ottawa, and all the dedicated staff, volunteers and community members who helped ensure the success of the 39th annual OC Transpo / Loblaw Christmas Food Drive!

On Saturday, December 9, OC Transpo busses visited Loblaws, No Frills, Superstore, and Your Independent Grocers locations across the city. We couldn’t have done it without Ottawa’s Best Volunteers!

The need unfortunately remains ongoing well beyond this time of year. Your support remains needed to ensure we can keep up with unprecedented demand and provide various nutritious food options. Because the Ottawa Food Bank can obtain food in such large quantities, and due to our incredible food industry partners and supporters, we can make your donation go further.

Thank you for your amazing support during this critical time!

The numbers are in…
Thanks to your support, we raised:

$20,695 in monetary donations

and more than 45,400 lbs* of donated food!

We wish everyone a happy holiday season and
THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.
*Additional store pickups are happening this week
