WHAT IS BAG-HALF-FULL?

We are a free grocery shopping and delivery service for individuals in Ottawa who are not able to shop for themselves (e.g. elderly, immunocompromised, mobility issues). This initiative was started by University of Ottawa medical students in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This position is a great way to serve our community in this time of crisis, and a great addition to your CV!
