Despite our diligent efforts, more and more people are hungry every year. In New Brunswick, we are reaching a tipping point, and we need to urgently look at different ways to meet the immediate need and reduce the ongoing need. By connecting with local agriculture and business, we will change how the food bank network relates to the food it requires to help people. Our transformative project is leading the way on this important topic all across our region and Canada.

Growing our capacity to feed more people.

This facility, the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada, will receive, recover, and distribute fresh foods that are destined for waste to increase our capacity to feed the 22.7% of New Brunswickers who are experiencing food insecurity.

Our aim is to get at least 60% fresh food in each hamper.

The THRIVE campaign will allow us to create $4 million in food each year; for every $1 spent, we will create and preserve $5 to $11 of value-added, freezer-stable food items for redistribution to over 70 food focused organizations through Food Depot Alimentaire’s (FDA) network.

These organizations include homeless shelters, community kitchens, school nutrition programs, and Meals on Wheels.

In addition, it will help us divert thousands of pounds of food from landfill.
