Our Outreach Program provides 50 hot meals a day at lunchtime, five days a week to the John
Howard Society (250 meals per week).
We do this by:
Sharing food donations with sixteen social service agencies weekly including the Fredericton Community Food Centre (The Fredericton Food Bank), the Salvation Army Food Bank and the Oromocto Food Bank. The Kitchen is well placed to receive larger donations from local businesses so we keep what we need and share the rest to minimize waste in our community.
Providing food boxes in emergency situations. We receive requests primarily from the UNB Community Health Clinic, Capital Region Mental Health & Addictions Association, Partners for Youth, when families arrive to the city, are fleeing difficult situations, are contending with extreme conditions.
Providing start up food boxes to all individuals moving out of the shelters or rooming houses into supportive housing in partnership with the SUN (Supportive Housing Network) Committee.
