ABOUT US


Greener Village started as The Fredericton Food Bank in 1983, becoming one of the first food charities in the Greater Fredericton Area. In 2012, the Fredericton Food Bank made the transition to our new building located on Riverside Drive in Fredericton.  With the move to our current location, we developed a Learning Kitchen, Community Gardens and the Unique Boutique. 

MISSION STATEMENT

Greener Village supports people in their journey to self-sufficiency by garnering and distributing food and clothing and providing learning and skills development opportunities.

VISION

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

 

 

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.
