Today Greener Village provides assistance to over 1300 people weekly, 35% of our clients are children and youth, 10% are seniors.
The needs of this community are met through multiple distribution locations, community kitchens, training workshops and partnerships with over 35 community partners located in the Fredericton area.
The Greener Village receives, purchases and distributes approximately $1.25 million worth of food each year. Because of our size, scale and unique position in the local food system, Greener Village has significantly greater buying power than can be achieved at the grocery store and can purchase as much as $3 worth of food for every $1 donated, maximizing the impact of our donor’s generous contributions.
While we continue to provide assistance to help address the immediate needs of the community, we also recognize that emergency food as a stand-alone is not a long-term solution.
