Did you know the Ottawa Food Bank and the network of food programs accept fresh produce?
It’s true! If you grow produce, have a community garden nearby, or know someone with a green thumb who grew a little extra, please consider donating these fresh and local goods to the Ottawa Food Bank or your local community food bank.
Fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables are an essential part of everyone’s health and wellbeing. With the help of their own eight-acre farm, approximately 46% of the food the Ottawa Food Bank distributes is fresh – but the community can always accept and needs more.
If you’d like to donate directly to the community food bank closest to you, please use the Ottawa Food Bank’s look-up tool to find where they are located. Otherwise, you’re welcome to take your fresh produce directly to the Ottawa Food Bank at 1317 Michael Street, Monday to Friday between the hours of 8 AM – 4 PM.
Thank you for helping keep our community healthy.
