Corporate Social Responsibility Programs

SHAW CENTRE CARES & SHARES

At Shaw Centre, we believe in giving back to our community – and encourage those who gather here in Ottawa’s premier meeting and event venue to join with us in doing just that.  We offer three flexible CSR programs that enable our clients to have a positive impact with minimal effort. Ask us how you can become involved and we’ll propose a CSR initiative that aligns with your organization’s values and objectives.


Shaw Centre Meal Share

MEALSHARE
Your Event Can Help End Childhood Hunger

Cousins and best friends, Hall and Bryant started out with only four partner restaurants in 2013. Since then, Mealshare has added over 300 participating restaurants, and has provided more than 1,000,000 meals to youth in need!

Mealshare is a national non-profit organization that believes every child has a right to food. Managing partners Andrew Hall and Jeremy Bryant, established Mealshare in 2013 with a long-term goal: to one day be able to explain to their grandchildren that there used to be hungry children in the world.

At Shaw Centre, we are happy to extend the opportunity for you to partner with this incredible organization in the fight to end youth hunger.

You are invited to donate a lump sum (at your discretion), which will be used to feed youth in need and help to expand this growing initiative.

In turn, Shaw Centre will create marketing collateral for your event, announcing exact number of meals that your company’s generous donation has provided on behalf of your guests via Mealshare.

Ask us about it and help us change the world, one meal at a time.


Shaw Centre Table des chefs

TABLÉE DES CHEFS
Recovering Surplus Food for People in Need

Shaw Centre is an active participant in Tablée des Chefs, a 15-year-old non-profit Sustainable Food Brokerage Service that gets surplus food – from hotels, restaurants and institutions – to people in need.

By subscribing to the Sustainable Food Brokerage Service, donating establishments like Shaw Centre must establish a food recovery process that is safe and sustainable. They also actively contribute to reduce food waste by establishing good practices.

Our partnership with this service provides our clients with the option of recovering food surplus at the conclusion of their event and donating it to people in need in our community via the Shepherds of Good Hope.

Ask your Event Services Manager how your event can participate!


Shaw Centre Leave a Legacy

LEAVE A LEGACY
Paying It Forward With What’s Left Behind

Shaw Centre clients are doing good by donating left-over goods to the local Ottawa community with volunteer assistance from Shaw Centre colleagues.

Our Leave a Legacy Program is a flexible and easy way for clients to leave a lasting community heritage from their Shaw Centre event.

Ask us about how our volunteer colleagues can help you identify opportunities to donate anything left over – non-perishable food, obsolete marketing collateral, promotional items, furniture, displays, carpets, or anything else – from your event or organization that could help those in need in our community. We’ll look after all the arrangements to ensure your donation goes where it can make a difference.
