New Brunswick’s Food Security Source

Serving 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 Southeastern New Brunswick. Our primary functions include food storage and distribution, fundraising and food collection, security and advocacy for the people we serve and the agencies we support.

For many New Brunswickers and Canadians, hunger is a real challenge that they must face in their daily lives.

On average, Moncton’s two community kitchens serve 740 meals to men, women and children each day.

In this past year, we have…..

  • Supplied food banks and soup kitchens with more than 2.5 million pounds of food.
  • Served more than 1,100,000 meals, 30,000 of which were served to families. Out of these 30,000 families, a little more than 40,000 adults and 18,000 children under the age of 18 were fed.
  • Logged more than 20,000 volunteer hours at our distribution centre. This doesn’t include the numerous volunteers at individual food banks.

Food Recovery Program

Together we can make Moncton a zero waste city

In October 2016, in partnership with Food Banks Canada and the City of Moncton, the Food Depot Alimentaire launched their Greater Moncton Food Recovery Program!

The FRP is a collaborative program made up of 7 agencies across Greater Moncton who benefit from food recovered product on a weekly basis. The Food Depot Alimentaire facilitates the program by gathering retail partners to donate their food once it is ready to be pulled from the shelves, including meat, fish, produce and dairy. Our refrigerated vehicle run regular pickups based on the partners needs and once the food is returned to our warehouse it is divided among member agencies. Time-sensitive food is sent to our Medavie Community Kitchen for preservation. Food Depot Alimentaire ensures all food safety standards are met. To get involved please contact our executive director Chantal Senecal at 383-4281 ext 3 or at Chantal.senecal@fooddepot.ca Together we can make Greater Moncton a ZERO waste city!

Our Participating Retailers: Sobeys, Atlantic Superstore, Atlantic Wholesale Cash & Carry and Costco.
