Greener Village Community Food Centre Welcomes You

In 2012, the Fredericton Food Bank transitioned from a "food bank service model" to a "community food centre model”, now called Greener Village Community Food Centre, the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada. Our vision is to provide emergency access to high-quality food in a dignified setting that does not compromise self-worth.

Servicing the Greater Fredericton Area, we provide emergency food relief to an average of 900 families a month, approximately 2,700 people, 37% of which are children.  Access to healthy food is a basic human right, even to those with low incomes.

We offer:

  • Healthier food choices in food hampers
  • Cooking workshops in our Teaching Kitchen
  • Gardens and greenhouses to provide quality fruits and vegetables
  • A living classroom environment for outdoor learning and discovery

For more information, please call us at 506-459-7461 and we will be happy to help you!
