Please note: Update to services April 6th-16th
The health and well-bring of our neighbours, volunteers, community partners and employees are, and have always been, our top priorities. Note the following changes/updates:
For two weeks, from April 6th to April 16th, we may no longer provide food to individuals and families residing outside our catchment area who typically access our Food Bank with referrals or Doctors’ notes.
If you reside outside our catchment and require food, please visit https://www.ottawafoodbank.ca/get-help to find your local food bank.
Our Food Bank is working on a delivery model only.
All cooking workshops and community meals, including lunches, are cancelled.

If you want to help
We need you! Parkdale Food Centre has always responded to acute needs in our City with a full heart, and we are only able to do so because of your incredible support.
We recognize that COVID 19 and its implications, including potential self-isolation and school closures, affect low-income and vulnerable individuals and families most. Many cannot afford to stock their pantries for a potential quarantine; many face unpaid leave in the event of a prolonged absence from work; children in need will be without important free meals otherwise available through school breakfast programs; and for those with mental health challenges or inadequate housing, self-isolation can have debilitating consequences. As always we will be doing our best to respond to each and every need based on the resources we have available. We appreciate your support during this complex and evolving time.
