Smiling group of diverse children

Ottawa Network for Education (ONFE)



The Ottawa Network for Education (ONFE) is a charitable organization that collaborates with partners from education, business, government, and the community to develop enriching programs for K-12 students. Working with the four public school boards, ONFE supports children and youth in English and French. We fuel kids and ignite learning, making sure all children in Ottawa have an equal start every day. No other community organization has the same reach and ability to respond and deliver much-needed programs to schools across the region.


To inspire and support every child’s learning journey in reaching their full potential by connecting community resources to help K-12 students succeed.

We fuel kids and ignite learning.

Our Impact

Each school day, our School Breakfast Program provides over 16,000 students in 200 schools with a nutritious breakfast and the chance to start their day ready to learn and on equal footing with their peers. That’s nearly 3 million meals per year that are absolutely crucial to the health and well-being of our children and youth.

Last year, Classroom Gardens taught 3,550 students from 106 Ottawa schools the value of gardening and healthy eating.

The Volunteers in Education provided learning support to 5,247 students in 95 Ottawa schools.

JA Ottawa equipped 11,369 students in 63 Ottawa schools with financial literacy, entrepreneurial, and career readiness skills.
