If you need food

Phone us at 613-722-8019 to place an order, or fill out an order form online here to put in an order for you and your family.

There are two options to receive your food:

  1. curbside delivery on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday afternoons,  or,
  2. scheduled pick-up in your own vehicle  on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7:00pm*

*your order will be packed in boxes and due to the quantity of food, you must have a vehicle, and a confirmed pick-up time with us, in order to pick-up at this time. Please arrive only at your scheduled time, remain in your vehicle and call 613-729-0980

Out of catchment note:

In order to access our food bank from out of our catchment instead of the food bank in your area, you must provide a referral from a doctor, social worker, or other 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 the Food bank or Community Food Program in you area, you can search with your address using the Ottawa Foodbank website:: https://www.ottawafoodbank.ca/get-help/ or call the Ottawa Foodbank: 613-745-7001
