Servicing the frontline on hunger

Food Depot Alimentaire (FDA) is a registered, non-profit charitable organization that serves food banks, community kitchens, after-school programs and other supportive agencies across New Brunswick. Our primary functions include food storage and distribution, fundraising and food collection and advocacy for the people we serve and the agencies we support. 

In April 2017 in partnership with the NBAFB and Midland Transport, the Food Depot Alimentaire launch their provincial distribution division. Located at 330 MacNaughton, the warehouse is collecting and distributing hundreds of thousands of pounds of food each month. FDA services over 90 agencies provincially in an effort to ensure that no New Brunswicker goes hungry.


This past year alone, individual donations have helped us feed more than 1,100,000 people, 30,000 of whom were families. Learn how to to make your own contribution in How to Help and keep an eye on our calendar for upcoming fundraisers!

Christmas Aid Program

Ensuring that 1,800 families receive the joy of a traditional Christmas dinner and food to sustain them throughout the holidays is no small feat, and we’re continually astounded by the number of volunteers and local businesses who volunteer their time to make donations and deliver boxes for our Christmas Aid Program.

“Overall, this is our biggest project of the year in terms of funds required and food
distributed” says FDA vice president and project coordinator Carla Ayles.
“Just the number of volunteers alone is surprising. To many it appears to be a one-
day activity but in reality, this is a two-month project from start to finish”.

Registration for a Christmas box takes place each year from the end of October to mid- December. If you’re interested, please contact the distribution centre or Peter McKee Community Food Centre. All donations can be made during our Sue Stutltz Turkey Drive, which you can learn more about on our Donations page.

Our weekly 50/50 draw gives us a steady stream of revenue that – in addition to buying food – helps pay the administrative costs not covered by donations and/or grants.

Once you register at one of our designated locations, you may purchase individual tickets for $2 each, three tickets for $5 or 10 tickets for $10. Public draws are held Wednesdays at 1:00 pm at the distribution centre and the winners are contacted shortly afterwards.

Please note that you must pay a minimum of $2 each week to activate a ticket. Otherwise, it will be considered a non-winning ticket if drawn. Your name will remain in the draw each week until you deactivate your account.

We all have heard how it “takes a village to raise a child”, well in that same vain we believe it “takes a community to feed its hungry”.

How Does It Work?

You must be registered to play.  Register by providing your name and phone number at any of the retail outlets listed below and you will be assigned a player ID number and 5-digit ticket number.  At the start of each weekly draw, one ticket (with the player ID and ticket number on it) for each registered player physically drops into a large drum at the Food Depot Alimentaire.  Purchasing a $2.00 ticket activates the ticket in the drum providing you with a chance to win.  The purchase of a $5.00 ticket activates the ticket in the drum as well as drops two additional tickets into the drum for a total of three chances to win and a $10.00 purchase activates the ticket in the drum and drops an additional nine ticket into the drum for a total of ten chances to win.  There is no limit on the number of tickets you can purchase.  On draw day, Food Depot draws ONE ticket from the drum and identifies through the computer if the number on the ticket drawn was purchased that week.  If yes, then the person associated with that ticket is contacted and receives 50% of the amount in the pot. If no, the entire pot is moved into the following week’s draw.  All printed tickets in the drum are then removed and the process repeats itself.  You do not have to be at home at the time of the draw to win.  The winner has 12 months from the draw date to claim their winnings.

Where Do You Register and Play Each Week?

Players can purchase their ticket(s) at any of the following locations.

Metrotones Pop Chorus Notice

The 20th annual “spring concert” by the Metrotones, originally planned for June 13th at the Wesleyan Centre, has been officially cancelled due to the current COVID-19 situation.

The cancelling of the concert precludes the chorus from assisting local charities with food and funds in the normal fashion. However, given the increasing demand on food banks the Metrotones want to reach out to their supporters to assist the Food Depot Alimentaire nonetheless.

“Our chorus group was obviously disappointed at having to cancel our June concert, but we still wanted to be able to give back to the community through our loyal followers” said chorus director Peter Butler.

From now until June 13th, the scheduled date of the cancelled concert, the Metrotones are asking the community to make a donation of at least the price of a concert ticket ($10) and/or make a food donation in the bins located at all three Sobeys locations in Moncton (Vaughn Harvey, Elmwood Drive, Mountain Rd).

Monetary donations can be made a variety of ways:

  • Dropping off at the FDA warehouse or Peter McKee Centre;
  • Dropping off at 7 Borden St in Riverview or 80 Pleasant Rd-Unit 116 in Moncton;
  • Direct mail to FDA;
  • On-line at FDA website – look for the Metrotones button;
  • Via an email bank transfer to Moncton.metrotones@gmail.com with password “Paul Newman” – Directly to any members of the Metrotones chorus.

“This is an extraordinary initiative by the Metrotones but comes as no surprise given their focus on local charities” says FDA president Dale Hicks. “They are a special group in our community”.
