Thank you Edith Cavell School Staff!

A huge thank you goes out to the Edith Cavell School staff for donating $645 to the Peter McKee Community Food Center to help pay for new computers.  The money was collected from their Friday Jean Day throughout the year.  They were able to send a child to camp, donate to the Humanity Project AND contribute to the Peter McKee Community Food Center with the money raised.  We are so grateful for your generous donation.  Their visit to the Center was especially special because one of the volunteers attends school in their facility a few times a week! 

 

Thank you for the amazing work you all do!

FDA becomes Distribtution Centre for all NB Food Banks

We are happy to announce that the Food Depot Alimentaire warehouse in Moncton will be the distribution point for all food banks in the province.

Greg Doucet, provincial food coordinator, agrees that having one central location is beneficial.  Large corporations will surely benefit from this since it's ideal for them to deal with one entity.

Doucet says many food banks in the province will now have access to meat and produce (for the first time!) because the Food Depot Alimentaire warehouse has large freezers and frid…
