Go Back

Rebecca’s Story

Rebecca fled from an abusive relationship with only her daughter and the clothes on their backs.

Placed in a cramped motel for emergency housing, things felt hopeless. She had no money for food, no diapers, and nothing to feed her sweet baby girl. Her whole life had changed, and she had no idea where to turn for help.

Because of the generosity of people like you, Rebecca was able to connect with an Ottawa Food Bank member agency.

She got help that very same day – and was shocked to receive more than just food. Rebecca was overwhelmed with gratitude and relief to have access to diapers, wipes, and formula in addition to food to help supplement her baby’s diet.

Raising kids is hard at the best of times.

Everything moms have gets poured into their children: time, sleep, money… But even after all that sacrifice, some mothers in our community don’t have what they need to care for their young ones.

You can ensure moms have the basics their babies need to survive.

When you support the Ottawa Food Bank, you help moms like Rebecca make ends meet. You provide nutritious food along with infant necessities like diapers, wipes, and formula so no baby has to go without. These simple items can make a huge impact during an incredibly stressful and challenging time.
