About Our Auction
This pandemic has highlighted many issues that our society faces, and one of the most pressing is food security. I can't recall a time in my life when it has felt more important to support our community, particularly those among us who do not have access to life's basic necessities. If you were among those of us fortunate enough to have been able to run to the grocery store as this crisis was declared, then you are among the privileged; for many, this was not a possibility. Many people in our community already needed the help of the food bank prior to this crisis, in order to help make ends meet and provide good, nourishing food for their families and themselves.
In Ottawa alone, more than 39,000 people visit an emergency food bank program every month.
As this pandemic continues, the number of us who may need this service will continue to grow, and it is our responsibility as members of this community to do what we can, and help ensure that the people within it are supported, and loved.
A friend recently wrote that "a community is an extended family," and we need our families now, more than ever.
Everyone's role in this is different and each person's ability to contribute is unique. BenjaminDPhotography has many photographic prints sitting in storage and over the coming weeks, we will be auctioning them off with all profits going to the Ottawa Food Bank.
This community, this family, is 1 million people strong and together, we will make it through.
