The Ottawa Food Bank’s volunteer program is privileged to have the support of groups and individuals who are very generous with their time. The organization is touched by the level of energy, commitment, skill, and passion their volunteers bring daily. The Ottawa Food Bank simply would not be able to do what it does without them.
The volunteer program is supported by nearly 3000 volunteers each year, who assist every step of the way by working on their delivery trucks, offering a helping hand in the warehouse, growing produce on their farm, as well as representing the Ottawa Food Bank at special events, food drives, and over the phone.
Last year, the volunteers of the Ottawa Food Bank worked in support of the collection and distribution of approximately 5,494,175 lbs of food to our 114-member agencies. The Ottawa Food Bank, along with 37,524 citizens of Ottawa who turned to an emergency food program, extend heartfelt thanks for their volunteers and the work they do.
