Holiday Food Drive


Each November, we challenge workplaces across the Ottawa Region to collect funds and non-perishable food. With the help of volunteers we distribute boxes and posters, and we pick up your donations in December. The Holiday Food Drive is a great way to bring in the holiday season, and the proceeds help the Ottawa Food Bank provide emergency food service for its Member Agencies well into the winter months.

At the end of your Holiday Food Drive, please fill out our Final Tally Form to let us know how you did! You can include this form with your donations, email it in, or send it to us by fax to 613-745-7337.

You’ll find your Holiday Food Drive toolkit here.

But before you begin the registration process, please read our Event Guidelines for further helpful information.

The minimum limit for donation pick-ups is waved for Holiday Food Drive participants, however if you are able to drop off your donations, it is still greatly appreciated.


NOTE: Registration page currently removed. Our 2014 Holiday Food Drive will launch November 3rd.  If you wish to participate or have any further questions please email Maggie at
