Donate Food

Join the growing list of businesses that have partnered with Foodsharing Ottawa to reduce food waste.

We work with grocery stores, bakeries, hotels, restaurants, and farmers’ market vendors to find better uses for the surplus food they cannot sell. It’s a win-win-win for the business, the community and the environment.

Worried about legal liabilities? Across Canada, the law provides protections for companies and individuals who choose to donate food rather than throw it away.

Find out more about the rules in Ontario that protect you here: Donation of Food Act 1994.
