You Helped Us a Lot Fill Fridges on Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Thank you to the generous Ottawa community for the incredible support on GivingTuesday!

We went into it with the goal to raise enough money to fill 1,500 refrigerators for families for ONE day. As the day went on, it was clear the Ottawa community wanted to help us do even more.

When all is said and done, you helped fill 7,835 fridges for a FULL family!

This was an incredible community effort with a ton of individuals sending donations our way over the course of the day. THANK YOU to everyone who saw the ask, then took the time time to support the community. The fact that you chose to donate to the Ottawa Food Bank is not something we take for granted. We are truly honoured to have your support.

Thank you to Sobeys for being our GivingTuesday partner and helping to encourage donations by contributing a $10,000 Matching Gift! This got the ball rolling for a fantastic day.

Thank you to our official GivingTuesday partner:
