BUY TWO. DONATE ONE.
Aside from food and fund donations, the Ottawa Food Bank also accepts several non-food items; items that our beneficiaries would need from day-to-day, but might not be able to afford.
Luckily, as one friend of the Ottawa Food Bank discovered, these are often coupon items – buy two, get the third free.
“I definitely never need three of the same shampoo,” she said. “So, I decided to hold on to these extra items until I had enough of a collection to give to those who needed them.” After making a couple calls, she was pleased to discover that the Ottawa Food Bank does accept non-food items, and she drove them to our warehouse.
Some of the items we’re most in need of include:
- Feminine supplies
- Baby powder
- Baby wipes
- Pull-Ups / Diapers
- Toilet paper
- Soap (personal / dish)
