Together we can make a difference.

In 2006, Joseph’s Storehouse was established as a food pantry by local residents, Bob and Pauline Giroux. It was the first community-run food bank to help meet the needs of Blackburn Hamlet residents. In the Fall of 2011, the operation of Joseph’s Storehouse was transitioned to Lifecentre Church and renamed Lifecentre Food Bank. As Bob and Pauline retired, the great work they had begun in Blackburn Hamlet continues. Every month more than 150 families of Blackburn Hamlet benefit from having a local food bank.

As a member agency of the Ottawa Food Bank and proud part of the community, Lifecentre Food Bank is honoured to make a difference in our city through food relief, enrichment clinics, school backpacks, Christmas hampers, summer camps, and free clothing pop-up-shops. Together, we can make a difference.
