7 year old Rohan did some busking outside King's Place by playing the drums! He raised $242.50 for the Fredericton Food Bank and even received some invites to future gigs!
The video can be seen here.
Thank you so much Rohan!

Keep an eye out for more Tasty Tuesday to come!
The second annual Turkey Race between the northside and the southside of Fredericton brought in an astounding number of turkeys (almost 1400). Thanks to the firefighters, Peter's Meat, Victory Meat and all the people of Fredericton who supported this in record numbers. To say we were blown away is a vast understatement!!
During this week and next we have many volunteers from businesses and companies in Fredericton who come in and pack and sort and get us ready for our Christmas hampers. It was a pleasure to have people from Kent Building Supplies (South) in to help us get ready to hit the ground running!
The donations have been rolling in! Groups such as UNB Varsity, STU Athletics, We Define NB, Epsilon Y's Service Club, Marysville Y's Service Club, 1RNBR, The Fredericton Golden Club and Bayview Trucks and Supplies! Thank you for your support!!
A little late as our web person has been using up some vacation time before the busyness of Christmas takes us full throttle. There are some people we really need to thank though - Sunrise Rotary, The Radical Edge, Burger King, Fredericton Food Rescue and more.
A huge thank you to everyone involved in the Beer on the Bridge event!! Sunrise Rotary stopped by at our recent Open House event to present us with this donation!
It's not exactly lemons and lemonade but it is a fair amount of tart, local grapes from a gleaning project that Chef Yves turned into 126 jars of grape jelly that we can then put up as one of our client choice items.
Thank you to Burger King (Smythe Street and Cliffe Street) and all their customers for the generous donation!
Thank you to the Radical Edge, Osprey, Graystone Brewing and Jennie! This year we provided school supplies for over 400 children and your donation of 100 book bags was a huge help!!
