Many in Old Ottawa South will remember the “Walk for the Centre” which runs every fall to promote awareness of food insecurity for many in our city, and to raise funds for the Centretown Emergency Food Centre. The Centre serves a large central catchment area including OOS, and has students, seniors, recent immigrants, and rooming house occupants amongst its clients. In addition, the Food Centre’s 90-plus volunteers include a number of OOS residents. Several neighbourhood churches are members of the Centre’s parent organization and sponsor of the walkathon, the Centretown Churches Social Action Committee (CCSAC).
