[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A big thank you to Purolator for once again including the Ottawa Food Bank in the Purolator Tackle Hunger campaign.
Fans of the Ottawa REDBLACKS (aka RNation!!) were asked to bring donations for the Ottawa Food Bank to Saturday’s game versus the Montreal Alouettes. Thanks to their wonderful generosity, the equivalent of 24,920 pounds of food was donated in just a few short hours! Thank you for everyone who is helping us tackle hunger and see our vision of providing healthy, accessible, sustainable food for all.
Also thank you to the REDBLACKS and Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) for your outstanding support. Your support and enthusiasm during these annual campaigns really contribute to their success and make it enjoyable for everyone involved.
Thank you also to the amazing volunteers who accepted donations with a smile and encouraged the football fans to become donors. Events like this couldn’t happen without you.
Purolator has always been such a great supporter of the Ottawa Food Bank through various campaigns over the years. Thank you – we look forward to working with you again.

Thank you to all involved for helping us provide the best food possible to our neighbours,” said Michael Maidment, CEO, Ottawa Food Bank. “Support from this event comes at an important time for the Ottawa Food Bank as our food and money donations are at their lowest during the summer months.”[/blockquote][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_media_grid element_width=”3″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1534438866827-6b3be37b-da72-1″ include=”18352,18353,18354,18355″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
