Charity Gift Wrapping Station

Lansdowne Christmas Market

November 26, 27 & December 3, 4, 17, 18

Are you feeling in the spirit of giving this holiday season? Get the gifts you purchase at the Christmas Market beautifully wrapped in exchange for a donation of your choice to the Ottawa Community Food Partnership (OCFP)!

1. Donate personal care items (toiletries, feminine hygiene products, baby items), NEW cold weather accessories (socks, mittens, scarves), or toys.

OCFP is dedicated to addressing systemic issues surrounding food security. They partner with organizations across sectors, working to break down silos and moving forward together. They recognize that in order to bring real change, we have to address issues surrounding access to housing, income inequality, access to education, and more. In light of this, they will distribute these donations to local social service agencies in Ottawa.

2. Donate money (cash or tap your card) directly to OCFP.

The folks at OCFP have partnered with the Ottawa Farmers’ Market this past month to rescue over 700KG of fresh food from our vendors and distribute it to community fridges and social service agencies. Now that OCFP’s Emergency COVID-19 Funding has come to an end, we are coming together to support the amazing work they do to increase food security in our communities!
