Out of catchment note:

In order to access Mino’Weesini out of catchment instead of the community food support in your area, you must provide a referral from a doctor, social worker, or another health practitioner BEFORE you place an order.   Included in this letter, we require a note or a confirmation that you have visited your food bank and that it is not accessible or appropriate for your needs. We understand that there are many reasons why this may be the case: for example, diet, accessibility, hours of operation, or the quality/quantity of food available.  You or your doctor/social worker can email your referral directly to socialprescriptions@parkdalefoodcentre.org 

If you don’t know of any food supports in your area, you can search with your address using the Ottawa Food Bank website:: https://www.ottawafoodbank.ca/get-help/ or call the Ottawa Food Bank: 613-745-7001
