COVID-19 Update

Hello to all Foodsharing Ottawa donors, volunteers and new visitors.  Thank you for your commitment to reducing food waste in Ottawa and helping those who need it get access to quality food.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are following public health guidelines and taking all the necessary steps to ensure that our volunteers, partner donors and food recipients remain safe.

Many of our regular partners have closed temporarily or reduced their hours.  However, the ability to access and afford food remains a challenge for many in our community, and the number of people affected is likely growing due to job losses, school closures and other lockdown measures.

If you are a business with food to donate, please contact us!  We will get in touch to discuss how we can pick it up and distribute it to people in need.
