The 2021 Holiday Food Drive Totals Are In!

Which means you filled…
2,383 fridges for a family of four for a week!

We’re so grateful that you joined us and our presenting sponsor, Mosaic, in showing those experiencing food insecurity in Ottawa that you care. The Holiday Food Drive is one of our signature events that helps stock our shelves so we can continue to provide food to 112 member agencies throughout Ottawa.

This year, we launched our Holiday Food Drive Youth Ambassador role with Ava James-Sidoli from OnlyTakesOne, and watched this 20 member team raise over $28,000. We are excited to be supported by a generation of youth who have empathy and understand that everyone can make a difference.

We celebrate your incredible food collections alongside our Food Donation Pick Up Volunteers who did so much of the heavy lifting!

Thank you to Dymon Storage, the 33rd Service Battalion Canadian Army Combat Service Support Unit, and the Ottawa Police Service.

We couldn’t have done it without all of you!

You reached out to your colleagues, your friends and family, and your neighbours to help the tens of thousands of people who will access a local food bank or food program every month. They will remember your kindness.

Once again, we give special thanks to Mosaic for their ongoing support as our Holiday Food Drive presenting sponsor. Your dedication to the Ottawa Food Bank is greatly appreciated!
