How Can I Help the Community Food Basket?
We are often asked the question, "How can I help?" Here are some simple ways to support the work of the Community Food Basket:
VOLUNTEER. Fill out our volunteer sign-up form and get started on making a difference in the community.
BROWSE FACEBOOK. Like the Community Food Basket of Ottawa page to keep up to date on all our news and special events!
DONATE FOOD. We accept all non-perishable food items. Call us for more details on when you can drop off your donation.
DONATE NON-FOOD ITEMS. Products like laundry soap, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, toothpaste and shampoo are just as essential to living a healthy life as the food you eat, and yet, they are not covered by SNAP funds.
PLANT A GARDEN. Our local gardeners have been growing and donating fresh produce to the CFB for over 20 years!
DONATE MONEY. Through our affiliations with various food banks, and partnerships with local businesses, we are often able to purchase 5-10 times more food for the same amount of money than you would be able to at the grocery store.
PAYPAL. Make a secure donation through PayPal on our Ways to Give page.
SHOP ONLINE. Donate while you shop by using AmazonSmile. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases.
CREATE A PARTNERSHIP. We would love to hear your ideas for a creative partnership with a business or organization in the Ottawa area.
SPREAD THE WORD. The best and easiest way to help out the
Community Food Basket is by staying informed and telling friends and family about what we're up to! Help us help others in our community!
