Dinner is Served!

The Covid pandemic highlighted the urgent need to provide prepared meals to residents lacking cooking facilities (ie temporary shelters), prevented from preparing healthy meals by illness or stress, or lacking financial means to purchase safe and nutritious food.

Ottawa Cares responded with 'Dinner is Served'!

We reach residents in need through their children. Schools, after-school programs, and children's recreation providers partner with us to identify families who would benefit from prepared meals, while protecting their privacy and dignity. When we feed a hungry child, we also feed the rest of their family!

Meals are prepared in a not-for-profit kitchen, and packaged to be taken home. Meals are ordered and distributed weekly.
