How We Help 

Mission Statement

"To act as a food bank for  the beneficiaries of the population of South East Ottawa,  distributing food directly to the needy by arranging for, collecting, processing, storing and distributing food ."

Heron Emergency Food Centre Facts

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 will 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.In 2009, our overhead was $15,000.
