Services

Our main service is the emergency food hamper which is available to any member of the University of Ottawa community who wishes to access our service. The hamper contains three days worth of perishable and non-perishable food items. This is available once a month to help supplement your groceries! As a member agency of the Ottawa Food Bank, most of our food comes in regular deliveries from them.

The Good Food Box program is a community initiative by the Centretown Community Health Centre to provide affordable fruits and vegetables from local farmers to urban centers. You can order online at here, or you can stop by the Food Bank and order in person. We offer 5$ fruit bags, 10$, 15$ and 20$ boxes containing an assortment of seasonal fruits and vegetables, and 25$ boxes containing all organic fruits and vegetables.


All orders must be faxed (613- 233-2062) or e-mailed to bkatz@centretownchc.org by 12 noon. Bank deposits must be made by the end of the business day. *Orders due earlier to accommodate December holidays

We recycle egg cartons and plastic bags. The egg cartons and plastic bags are reused at the food bank.
