Food for Thought
COVID-19 Relief


The Food for Thought net-café provides good food, cultivates community spirit and reduces the digital divide in under-served Ottawa neighbourhoods.

During the COVID-19 crisis our café operations are closed, and we are redirecting all our efforts to provide complete meals for those who need it.  We target families that do not have cooking facilities and therefore face a daily challenge in feeding their children.   

There are over 2000 residents of family shelters in Ottawa that are in such a situation.

Our meals are prepared in restaurant facilities by chefs giving generously of their time and facilities.  Meals are served fresh out of our kitchens to shelters.  

We need your participation and donations so that we may feed these people every day.

                              Click "Donate now" near the bottom of the page.                   

                             Tax receipts will be issued by the Ottawa Community Foundation
