After eight years, the OVFC delivery day has shifted
from one Saturday a month to one Tuesday
evening a month. We hope that this day and time

to all OVFC customers, old and new.

community available here.

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.

Recipe of the day

Aragula Salad
Aragula Salad


Buying through the Ottawa Valley Food Co-op (OVFC) is important to me. By making a monthly pick up, I not only save on gas driving around the county picking up food, I know where it comes from. Having a relationship with producers, close by, means that if I have a concern about a product I know where to go for answers. Local producers live in the community and pay taxes here. They are invested and that feels right. I also have a better chance at obtaining food and products that are more healthful and less likely to harm me and the place I live.

It just makes so much sense.
