The rain this summer isn’t just affecting plans—it has dealt a big blow to the Ottawa Food Bank.The organization’s Community Harvest program, run on a farm in Stittsville, is in danger of losing up to 25 per cent of this year’s crop yield.

“The rain was tremendously challenging in terms of growing some of our crops here this year. Some of the areas of our fields, there [are] low spots and those tended to get waterlogged and inundated for days on end,” said Jason Gray, the manager for Community Harvest.
