Our Vision

Everyone in Greater Fredericton has the food and resources they need to live healthy, sustainable lives.

Our Mission

Greener Village supports the community by providing the food, clothing and developmental opportunities people require on their journey to self sufficiency.

About Us

We serve over 125,000 meals every month and cater to over 1,900 client families. We also customise food hampers the best we can depending on their dietary restrictions. 10-12% of our boxes are customised. 35% of our clients are children and youth, and 10% are seniors.

The needs of this community are met through food hampers, learning kitchen, training workshops and partnerships with over 35 community partners located in the Fredericton area.

The Greener Village receives, purchases and distributes approximately $1.6 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. We can purchase as much as $2 worth of food for every $1 donated, maximizing the impact of our donors’ 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.

“I come in weekly, bringing with me
donated animal food from the FSPCA… I
break down the bags and put 2 or 4 scoops of
dry food for cats or dogs into 8 or 12-pound bags,
along with canned food or treat bags, if available.
There is often animal food donated to Greener Village
by the general public or local pet stores to add to the
supply. It is great to see a large bag of dog/cat food
sitting on the cart that I work on, or cans in the yellow
plastic bin designated for animal food.

It is rewarding to know that the clients’ animals will
be well-fed. Animal food is very expensive, and I’m
sure it’s difficult for families to feed both their
human and animal members. I’m happy that
Greener Village is able to provide this
assistance to their clients.”
