N.B. Sharing is an initiative designed to supplement the food available to those in need living in New Brunswick, and at the same time, to support the producers of New Brunswick food products. It has been designed to be as simple as possible for the stores to administer.
Coupons valued at $2.00 each are placed at the cash counters of participating stores (Sobeys and Superstore) Customers have the opportunity at the time of their purchases to donate to their local food bank by having coupons scanned. These donations are accumulated for a period of time, usually one month, and are credited to the assigned Food Bank. Food Banks purchase food with these coupons as they need it. This is a great incentive and a win/win situation for everyone. A very easy way to support local Food Banks in NB.
