GETTING FOOD TO THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT.
The Ottawa Food Bank was founded in the basement of the former police station on Waller Street in 1984. Originally intended to be temporary in nature, the Ottawa Food Bank has grown to become a staple food relief organization in the Region. Today, we support 140 emergency food programs that feed approximately 48,000 people per month – 37 per cent of whom are children.
Our mission: To collect and distribute food to Member Agencies serving people in need in the Ottawa area.
Our vision: That no one goes hungry in the Ottawa area.
Our responsibility is to those who are hungry in the Ottawa Region, and we do everything that we can to provide them with nutritious food. Through donations of food, time, and money from individuals, businesses and local farmers we are able to focus on our mission and vision.
The Ottawa Food Bank is a registered charitable organization.
