The annual Food Aid BBQ is taking place at Festival Plaza, City Hall on Friday, June 1 this year. The BBQ will bring the Ottawa Food Bank that much closer to raising the necessary funds to sustain its beef program for a year.
For only $10, hamburgers prepared by The WORKS will be served alongside chips and a drink from 11AM to 2PM. There will be plenty to see and do at Festival Plaza, with music, a live broadcast by 580 CFRA, and celebrity milking competitions at 10:30 am and 12:30 pm. As well, the Ottawa Food Bank’s Capital Beef Cookbook will be on sale for only $15 along with specialty BBQ aprons to get you ready for Father’s Day and the BBQ season.
Food Aid is a program that provides nutritious protein to those who normally would not be able to afford it. All Food Aid fundraising efforts go towards purchasing and processing beef from local producers. Food Aid is an initiative which boosts the local market for cattle; since the program’s inception in 2005, Food Aid has provided more than 701,500 pounds of local beef to the most vulnerable in our community.
This event is presented by the Ottawa Food Bank in partnership with the City of Ottawa – Rural Affairs Office and several other community partners.
