Important Notice:

Tomorrow's (Tuesday Jan 23, 2018) Delivery Day
Has Been Postponed to Tuesday Jan. 30th!


Sorry folks, we've never had to do this before, but due to the extremely high probability of ice and snow conditions forecast across our region for tomorrow, the food co-op has had to make the difficult decision to postpone tomorrow's delivery day.

All orders currently scheduled to be delivered tomorrow (Jan 23) will be delivered next Tuesday January 30th at the usual time and place. 

We feel this is the best response given the number of people who would have to drive in hazardous road conditions - and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Watch your email for a reminder regarding this date change!
And contact us with any questions you may have.

 
 ..................................
Thanks go out to all the members who attended our AGM on May 2.
We had a great discussion, elected a new board and look forward
to continuing to provide local food access to our members!

After eight years, the OVFC delivery day has shifted

to all OVFC customers, old and new.

The photo below features a group of Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative’s (OVFC) dedicated volunteers flanked by OVFC Coordinator Cheryl Keetch on left and OVFC Volunteer Coordinator, Lynne Epps on right. These and many other volunteers have been invaluable to the monthly operations of the Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative, who have been distributing delicious Ottawa Valley food and products throughout the Ottawa Valley since 2008. Over 4000 volunteer hours have been logged since the inception of the co-op.
Saturday May 21, 2016 marked the last day that the group used the facilities at the Wesley United Church in Pembroke as their distribution hub. Beginning on Tuesday June 21, the sorting hub will move to the Rankin Culture and Community Centre and will continue to distribute delicious, authentic and local Ottawa Valley Food to Ottawa Valley communities. The move will also see a change in the monthly delivery day from Saturday to Tuesday evening. Membership is open to anyone, and more information can be found on this website.

Testimonial

I could not survive without the Ottawa Valley Food Coop as I am totally morally allergic to commercial supermarkets. Thank you all the producers for taking care of my family!
