Help Fight Community Hunger: Lawyers Fill the Food Bank!

February 25, 2020  

Annual Ottawa Courthouse & Law Firms "Fill the Food Bank" Food Drive: March 2 - 9, 2020

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 39,000 people in our community each month, 37% of those being children.

Make Your Donation!

Online: Any individual or firm can make a donation in the name of the 2020 Courthouse Food Drive online at this link.

In Person: Please bring in non-perishable food items or cash during the week of Monday, March 2 to Friday, March 6, 2020 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM to our table in the first floor atrium or to our friendly volunteers on the second floor just past security. Temporary tax receipts will be given out for all cash donations over $10.00. For every $1 you donate, the Food Bank turns that into $5 worth of delivered food.
