Atlético Ottawa to raise money for local food banks through branded facemasks -
"As new members to the Ottawa community, it is important that while we wait to get on the pitch at TD Place that we do our part to support those in need," said club CEO Fernando Lopez. "Supporting the Ottawa Food Bank with all the great work they do in the city to create a healthier city by empowering people, increasing access to healthy food, and advocating for systemic changes that reduce food insecurity is crucial during these times."

The non-medical grade face coverings are available in adult size, and can be pre-ordered online . The masks, which cost $19.99 for a pair, are tentatively scheduled to ship in early June.

All net proceeds from the sales of the masks will help provide food to those in need throughout the region. 

In the first five weeks of their COVID-19 response, the Ottawa Food Bank has been able to provide 665,450 lbs of food through their member agency network.
