Expanding our Food Hamper Services
Emergency Food Services – Mobile Delivery Service to RURAL Communities – we would like to expand by delivering once a month to the food desert communities where families cannot travel to reach services in Oromocto. These costs would include travel for our vehicle to 5 communities per month.
Cost per trip includes vehicle expenses
$200.00 x 5 = $1,000 per month
Expansion of Teaching Kitchen evening programs which would include:
A “Good Food” Warehouse For Central New Brunswick
Raise the Roof Campaign Central Distribution Warehouse for NB:
$400,000 Is being raised to build a 6,000 square food warehouse on the building lot next to the Oromocto Food Bank. This central warehouse will provide healthier foods to over 68,340 individuals in central NB in one year, 30% are children.
The Oromocto Food Bank board is directors is taking the initiative to expand the services to include a CENTRAL DISTRIBUTION WAREHOUSE for NB. This project is called “Raise the Roof” Over Hunger. The central warehouse will be the first point of contact for food banks/soup kitchens for large food orders that come into the province from local farmers, Sobeys, Costco, Walmart, Superstores and Food Banks Canada. It will also serve as a central warehouse for Food Waste from the food industry and retailers. Food Waste is an important issue for Canadians. It is a critical issue for food banks as much of their work is reliant on retailers and manufacturers, farmers donating safe surplus food to be shared with our community members in need.
