about HEFC

There is nothing complicated about what we do. Working with the Ottawa Food Bank, supported by the City of Ottawa and assisted by the generosity of the churches and local residents, HEFC receives food in bulk and purchases items that are needed to supplement what has been donated to ensure that the three day emergency supply of food that we provide wil meet the nutritional needs of  our clients. Over the years, we have developed a dedicated volunteer base that allows us to distribute a remarkable amount of food at an astonishingly low cost.

Annually HEFC provides emergency food supplies to approximately  4,000 different people in 1,300 households. Including repeated requests, we serve over 20,000 people.
