‘Cars Line up for Miles at Food Banks’ was the headline in The New York Times 

A food pantry in Omaha, for example, normally serving 100 people saw 900 in a single day. Could it happen here in Ottawa?

Well, at our Food Bank on St. Laurent Blvd., -- site of the former Rideau High School – 25% of the families getting food hampers each week are new!  (Operated by the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre.)

Consider who might be especially vulnerable and needing food during Covid-19:

  • Those unable to work due to Covid-19 and having trouble putting food on the table

  • 17% of people in the K1K postal code area living below the Low Income Cut Off

  • 30% of children in K1K living in poverty

  • 23% of residents in K1K who are 65 years of age or older

  • Single-parent families, most often lone females
