Food Bank Gen
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 from a traditional food bank charity to a community food centre, the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada. Now called Greener Village Community Food Centre, 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 an average of 1,200 families a month, approximately 3,200 people, 39% of which are children.
