VOLUNTEER: Week 3 of Hunger Action Month

Hunger Action Month is a time for all communities across Canada to come together and learn about food insecurity, while advocating for change and supporting our neighbours.

VOLUNTEER is the third theme of the month.

Are you an Ottawa Food Bank volunteer? We’d love for you to share pictures and stories about the amazing volunteer work you’re doing to help our community. Make sure you tag us (@OttawaFoodBank) and use the hashtag #HungerActionMonth.

Ottawa's Best Volunteers

We could not do what we do without our volunteers. Our food bank network could not do what they do without the help of their volunteers. People who give the gift of their time are essential to the success of charitable organizations like the Ottawa Food Bank.

We’ve had to change how we work with our volunteers a little bit during the pandemic, and have had to temporarily suspend our Student Volunteer Program. In spite of these changes, our volunteers have made it possible to continue to get food out the door to our member agencies and directly to people’s homes.

THANK YOU to our volunteers, Ottawa’s Best Volunteers!

Thank you for your dedication and continuous support, Beth!
