Foodsharing Ottawa was founded in 2015 by a group of volunteers passionate about reducing food waste. Our main focus is on rescuing surplus food from local businesses such as grocery stores and restaurants, and donating it back to the community where it’s needed. Through this work we are helping to reduce the environmental impact of food waste and address food insecurity in our community. In 2023, Foodsharing Ottawa was voted Ottawa’s New Humanitarian Initiative of the Year!
Our Food Donors
Foodsharing Ottawa has partnered with a wide range of businesses across Ottawa who generously donate their surplus or unwanted food.
We donate food to charities and not-for-profit organizations in Ottawa, who re-distribute it to those in need.
Share it - Don't toss it!
