The Ottawa Food Bank is lucky to have supporters that want to do their part to donate and help as much as possible. The events listed on this page are ongoing events, food drives and promotions that happen through out the year to benefit the Ottawa Food Bank.

Gifts @ Work

Gifts @ Work is an online program for organizations to recognize and reward their employees.  Employees are awarded Points which they can spend towards products, gift cards, or they can donate them to their favorite local charities! The Ottawa Food Bank is one of those charities!

Cantastic Gifts is the place to go to buy unique and fun gifts for your friends. For every quart and gallon Gift Can we sell, a contribution is made to the Ottawa Food Bank to help them continue their tireless work in making sure all our friends and neighbors have the gift of essential food.

Fiazza Fresh Fired

This ByWard Market pizza place has created the Fiazza Fresh Fired Fund where all proceeds from gift card purchases will go towards the fund.

All charitable gifts to the Fiazza Fresh Fired Fund are professionally managed by the Community Foundation of Ottawa.
