Ready? Set. SHOP!
VMware, a global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, challenged some of their customer representatives to grocery shop on behalf of the Ottawa Food Bank.
The event took place at Metro Southgate on the evening of December 10th. With healthy choices in mind, and our most needed items in hand, shoppers took to the aisles to buy as much as they could in 20 minutes. In the end, the bill came close to $10,000!
The event purchased approximately 12,000 pounds of groceries, which were then loaded into a truck and brought to the Ottawa Food Bank warehouse, where they will get distributed and delivered to those in need in the Ottawa community.
Thank you to VMware and their supporters for your very generous contribution.
