It has been a busy month for sure. Our Christmas program is well under way with over 2400 angel gift requests and 1100 hamper requests already processed.
We've had some big food drives from Keller Williams, Grace Memorial Church and Skillsoft. A generous donation from the Fredericton Kinsmen. A drive for baby items from Strollerfit and continued support from the fantastic folks at Walmart on Two Nations Crossing.
We've also just finished another Community Food Mentor Course! This marks our 10th time running this course centered around food security and it's always interesting to see the wide variety of people interested in a topic very close to our hearts.
This week we had another group from the community complete the Community Food Mentor Program. Community Food Mentors (CFMs) are a province-wide network of certified individuals who share their skills in food and nutrition within their own communities. More information can be found here.
The first harvest of the season from our garden beds!! We are exceptionally happy to be able to grow fresh from the garden produce for our clients at the Food Bank. By necessity much of what we are able to provide is canned goods but once the spring and summer arrive our Garden Coordinator and Seed students put a lot of work into our gardens so we can provide fresh foods!
At the start of the week we were in need of juice boxes for our kids lunch packs. Salesforce came through in a big way with enough juice boxes to carry us through to the end of the school year and to start stocking up for September!!!!
