IT WAS THE LARGEST SINGLE-DAY FOOD DRIVE IN OTTAWA FOOD BANK HISTORY

Buses were parked outside multiple Loblaws, Your Independent Grocer and Superstore locations on December 3 with one purpose: to get filled with food! It was the 27th Annual OC Transpo Christmas Food Drive across the Ottawa Region.

This year’s food drive was a monumental success, being the largest single-day food drive in Ottawa Food Bank history and bringing in 167,000 pounds of food!

A big thank you must be extended to OC Transpo, The City of Ottawa, participating grocery stores, the amazing volunteers, and the generous people in the Ottawa community!

Fill a Bus!
