Orléans Community Garden helps feed the hungry at The Ottawa Mission

It was a bountiful harvest at the Orléans Community Garden this year. Those tending to garden plots at the community garden at the corner of St.Jospeh Blvd and 10th Line Road donated more than 3000 lbs of fresh produce to The Mission!

The head of The Ottawa Mission kitchen, Chef Ric Watson says “This community initiative has made a significant difference in the variety of homemade and nutritious meals that we serve to people in need.”

Thank you to everyone who contributed some of their bounty and a special thanks to Gina Lapointe, President of the Orleans Community Garden, for the many hours she spent cleaning and transporting the produce down to our kitchen.
