Volunteers will be collecting non-perishable food items and cash donations. Can’t make it out on December 2nd? Not a problem, you can donate online at ottawafoodbank.ca/octranspo.

This food drive, which has been running ever since the Ottawa Food Bank opened its doors back in 1984, is the largest single-day food drive of the year. Last year’s food drive raised an incredible 83,740 pounds of food and $32,316 in cash and grocery store gift cards!
