Food Donations for Excess Inventory

Due to the immediate change to RED zone, Restaurants can support these organizations or recoup some losses:

Cooking for a Cause

Offering to purchase 2000 frozen meals at $5 each = $10,000

Parkdale Food Centre

Has the ability to purchase good quality fresh inventory from restaurants.

For restaurants that have inventory to sell, they can connect with Simon via email or phone 613-234-9396


Food for Thought

Has the ability to defray restaurants some amount for their loss.

If there is a lot of food available in a timely manner we can cancel our own cooking for tomorrow and use restaurant surplus.   No waste is a priority.

“If you give me contacts right now we will get on the horn and start organizing”

For restaurants or groups to connect direct with: Sylvain de, (613) 277-6630

Ottawa Food Bank

They can help reduce food waste, but not in position to purchase.

They will pick up direct from the restaurant and distribute.
