Why can’t we feed everyone

Little by little, a little becomes A LOT

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
What we do:
WCWFE provides a delivery service that bridges the gap between local food establishments and Donation Centers. Having direct experience within the Donation Centers, we fully understand what is needed and the challenges involved. With local support, we know that we can succeed in feeding everyone who needs that helping hand. Together we can feed everyone!
Local Businesses and Restaurants:
Our current focus is to create partnerships with local Donation Centers that have roots in the community and are active in helping feed the hungry. Community mission centers and community food banks are doing their part but still need a lot of help. We find that there are a number of eateries and food services that want to help but do not have the resources, means or information to do so. Most restaurants have leftovers that are discarded daily, imagine we (WCWFE) can help package those foods up and deliver them to places that can still use them. By providing means for these donations, we believe, will assist with costs in the food budget, allowing our community centers to allocate funds elsewhere, such as Hospital care, infrastructure and other social services.
We Don’t Stop There!
We will also be fundraising to help Donation Centers and families directly! We have a great team of passionate individuals whom are very eager to start the fundraising process. We are partnering up with local businesses in order to raise money and awareness in Ottawa and the communities throughout Ontario . It is imperative to our success to include and empower those who are willing but not able to do for themselves. With this in mind, WCWFE’s mission is to simply raise money to help those who can’t help themselves and provide a delivery service to help Donation Centers and local establishments bridge the gap, as we truly believe we can FEED EVERYONE!!
THE MILLION POUNDS PROJECT
Why Can’t We Feed Everyone (WCWFE) is firm in the belief that we can help in the fight to stop hunger across our nation’s capital. Our greater ambition is to take that fight across Ontario, then Canada. Our team has put together a plan that is founded in building strong partnerships to raise one million pounds of food (MPP project) in its first year. Ambitious – but achievable. We have charged our Ottawa community with a very big challenge to help us with our MPP goal and the response has been fantastic! Our current focus is on perishable goods. Everyday, food is being wasted but it doesn’t have to be. We are asking restaurants and grocery stores to provide us with what they consider to be waste in accordance with their respective standards. WCWFE cannot do this alone! We have been very fortunate with the number of volunteers that help us with deliveries but need to expand this support.

LET’S FEED EVERYONE!!
