Please join us again this year in the fight against community hunger by supporting the Ottawa Food Bank. The Ottawa Food Bank provides emergency food to over 38,400 people in our community each month, 35% of those being children. 

How to Donate

In Person: Please bring in non-perishable food items or cash during the week of Monday, March 5 to Friday, March 9, 2018 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM to our table in the first floor atrium or to our friendly volunteers on the second door just past security. Temporary tax receipts will be given out for all cash donations over $20.00. For every $1 you donate, the Food Bank turns that into $5 worth of food.

Online: Another great and easy way to make a contribution to the Courthouse Food Bank Drive is through the Ottawa Food Bank's online donation platform! Click here to donate!

Law Firms Fill the Ottawa Food Bank: The law firm competition challenge is open to any firm of any size! All you have to do to register is contact Mitchell Kitagawa at Kelly Santini ( to sign up! Encourage everyone in your firm to donate cash or food during the week of the Food Drive, March 5 to 9 and then at the end of the week let us know how well you did. We can arrange for cash collection containers and boxes to be delivered to your office and then picked up once the campaign is completed. It’s as easy as that and for a great cause! 

If you would prefer, we also welcome donations sent over from law offices. These donations can be delivered to the CCLA Library/Barristers Lounge at 161 Elgin Street; cheques can be made payable to "Ottawa Food Bank." We will include all donations sent this way in our total for the week, so consider an office-wide contribution!

Last year we raised $16,674 and donated 1,119 LBS of food - let’s try to break last year’s total!

We'd like to thank in advance those people who will generously be donating their time at the Food Bank Drive tables next week:

  • Monday: Lisa Sharp & Friends from the Family Law Bar
  • Tuesday: Susan Mitchell & Friends from Tierney Stauffer Lawyers
  • Wednesday: Soloway Wright LLP
  • Thursday: Khalid Elgazzar & Friends
  • Friday: Caza Saikaley LLP

Thank you for all your support!
