Vision: At the Parkdale Food Centre, we believe in an Ottawa where everyone has the means and opportunity to live a healthy, connected, and fulfilling life.

Mission: To build healthier, more connected neighbours and neighbourhoods through good food, innovative community partnerships, and by challenging inequalities in order to create lasting impacts.

Values:

  1. Nutritious, wholesome food is a basic human right, and is fundamental to building positive physical, mental, and emotional health.
  2. Everyone, regardless of their economic means, age, gender, abilities, or ethnicity, deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
  3. A physically and emotionally safe environment is key to building strong communities.
  4. Positive social change happens one person at a time.
  5. Partnerships create strong communities.
  6. It is our responsibility to challenge inequalities and raise awareness.
  7. Creativity and innovation are to be encouraged and embraced.
  8. Engaged staff and volunteers are vital to our success
  9. Being a leader, and encouraging leadership in others, will create momentum and growth.

We are a registered not-for profit charity staffed by a small team of dedicated staff who are supported by a large base of energetic volunteers and a network of community partners who share our vision of building healthier, more connected communities through good food and friendship.

The Board of Directors of the Parkdale Food Centre is composed entirely of volunteers.

If You Need Food: Please Contact The Following Locations: 

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 afternoons

*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 and ring the doorbell.

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

ORDER FORM

 

Donate

We are more than a food bank. Our work addresses food security through the power of good food and community by providing:

🍎 Accessible, barrier-free options to food
🍎 Adequate, nutritious, and safe food
🍎 Acceptable, culturally appropriate food
🍎 AGENCY – We believe in CHOICE. Our Neighbours choose the food they want & need.

 

If you are food insecure and require support, you shouldn’t have someone else selecting your food for you.
