Thanks for Giving, Ottawa!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Ottawa Food Bank’s annual Thanks for Giving Food Drive took place on the Saturday of the Thanksgiving long weekend, and the people of Ottawa showed their incredible giving spirit (despite the rain!).

With 22 participating grocery stores and nearly 95 amazing volunteers, this one-day food drive blitz was a wonderful success!

Thank you to the generous people of Ottawa for
donating 36,500 lbs of food in one day!

Thank you to the managers and staff at participating Loblaws, Metro, and Your Independent Grocers locations for your on-going support of our food drive efforts.

We are very grateful to our volunteers for helping make this food drive such a success. Finally, thank you to all who donated. Going into this food drive, the Ottawa Food Bank’s warehouse hand a lot of empty shelves. The generosity of our donors has helped not only fill our shelves, but also fill the tummy’s of people in need.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_media_grid element_width=”3″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1476814522737-795b06be-4d75-8″ include=”15780,15781,15779,15778″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
