Thank you to all those who continue to do Food Drives or Fundraisers during the slower seasons as well;
Our Christmas Aid Campaign
In our last issue we expressed how we needed to assist those families who could not make a Christmas meal happen for their familiy and again we did our "30 Days of Caring". We would like to add that we reached our goal, and fed over 1750 families again this year with food to help them over the holidays. We had an enormous amount of individuals and companies volunteer their time to put together this project which consisted of helping to answer calls, make appointments, food drives, sort food, repack boxes and load vehicles. It is a huge undertaking and we can't thank all of you enough for all the support you give us each and every year to help those in need. Your caring spirit shines high above all and truly shows the real meaning of Christmas. The donations came pouring in as well so we were able to purchase all of the groceries for the boxes - what a great feeling our community gives us. Thank you again....
Thank you to the businesses and organizations who make an effort each year to assist us and raise funds, food and entertains us in the meantime during our "30 Days of Caring" ...

Where is the new Moncton Community Food Center going to be?
Food Depot has been organizing and planning a huge project with Garrison Building on St. George Street for a bit of time and it is finally starting to come together. Great News - we received the keys to the Garrison Building and the plans have started as well as some renovations for a well deserved Moncton Community Food Center. The Garrison location will be our second building, our warehouse will remain in the Caledonia Industrial Park and continue to be the distribution warehouse for all of Southeastern NB. Keep updated with stories from the Times and Transcript for news of opening dates of the Garrison.
