Food Bank History
Fredericton Food Bank
The Fredericton Food Bank first opened its doors in 1983, becoming one of the first food charities in the Greater Fredericton Area. In 2012, the Fredericton Food Bank made the transition to our new building. With the space now available, we developed a Learning Kitchen, Community Gardens and the Unique Boutique. With our new property now named Greener Village, our vision is to provide emergency access to high-quality food in a dignified setting that promotes choice and self-esteem. Servicing the Greater Fredericton Area, we provide emergency food relief to more than 1,200 families a month, approximately 3,500 people, 32% of which are children.
