Food Rescue

The Big Heart Award

OSHaRE is serving meals Monday to Saturday from 12:00pm-1:30pm and Monday to Friday 4:30pm to 5:30pm. We are located at 946 3rd Ave. E. Owen Sound, Ontario. All meals are served to go and are packaged as guests arrive. Since the beginning of the pandemic we have seen a 300% increase in the number of meals we are serving. We are so thankful for our amazing volunteers, community partners, staff, donors and the whole community for helping us to meet this increased demand. Thank you for helping us to share at OSHaRE.

OSHaRE has been successfully aiding our community for over ten years.  During those years, OSHaRE has served thousands of meals, through the generous donations of people, businesses and other organizations; as well as the hard work of our amazing volunteers.  

Our new location is at 946 3rd Avenue, East, in downtown Owen Sound. In this location, OSHaRE has industrial-grade cooking equipment along with a walk in cooler and freezer. We have additional space to develop services and partnerships with other community organizations. We believe that these improvements will help us to serve our guests better.
