2009 Food Drive
As it was in 2009, in the spirit of the holiday season, National Capital Region Tamil Association (NCRTA) is holding a food drive to benefit the Ottawa Food Bank during the next couple of weeks. Please help us drive away hunger in our community, where we live and nurture.


For the past 25 years, the Ottawa Food Bank has been working very hard to fight community hunger. Sadly, the hunger problem in Ottawa is worse than ever -- 43,000 people seek monthly assistance through food programs supported by the Ottawa Food Bank, and 40% of those receiving assistance are children. Ottawa community truly determines the ability of Ottawa Food Bank to assist a growing number of families who are food insecure.


As part of the Ottawa community, this is a great opportunity for us, the Tamil Canadians of Ottawa, to help feed the hungry in Ottawa and we encourage all to join us in this effort. All food collected will help the Ottawa Food Bank to drive away hunger this holiday season.


Here is how you can help:


1.  Spread the word about this NCRTA food drive to your friends and families.


2.  Donate cash. Tax receipt will be provided if applicable. Note:  Every dollar donated provides five dollars worth of food for our community.
