It's that time of year when the shelves run bare at the Ottawa Food Bank.
Executive Director Michael Maidment tells CFRA they're counting on the Thanks for Giving Food Drive to help replenish their supply.
"After Christmas, it all starts to decline and all the way throughout the summer, there's a spring food drive, but it really does help us to stock our shelves and prepare for the rest of the year," he said.
Maidment adds they're always looking for important staples, like canned fish and meat, canned vegetables and fruit, whole grain cereal, cooking oil, peanut butter and rice.
You can drop off your donations at 87 George Street (the Market Media Mall) or any Giant Tiger location.
