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.

Supporting local, sustainable agriculture is so important to us and the OVFC makes it remarkably easy to do so. It’s wonderful that we have the chance to reconnect with the community that we know and love even though we’re no longer living right in the valley.  The Co-op is one of the things we miss most about Renfrew County, so I was more than delighted to learn that you were adding a pick-up location in Ottawa.
