  • New Brunswick Association of Food Banks is working to END Hunger in New Brunswick supporting all agencies in our province with a mandate to end hunger. Many New Brunswickers struggle to afford food, in fact more than one in five children in New Brunswick live in households struggling to put food on the table. In 2017 approximately 20,000 people were served each month by food banks in NB. 
  • With help from the New Brunswick Association of Food Banks are providing more than just groceries to families. They provide skill-building opportunities such as teaching kitchens, nutrition instruction, financial literacy, community gardens, budgeting workshops, and GED instruction.
  • You can help, when you’re out grocery shopping look for the Yellow Donation Cards and add $2 to you bill and support those battling hunger in our province! We can stretch every $1 donated into $5 worth of support due to our generous partners.

  • The Children's Wish Foundation in Moncton is a uniquely Canadian charity that helps Canadian children, families  and communities by granting the favourite wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. With every wish  granted, we create moments of joy that ease the pain of a child, give respite to the child's family, and connect  healthcare professionals and communities in that burning wish of hope. The Children’s Wish Foundation has been  granting wishes since 1984. As Children’s Wish celebrate the 30-year milestone, they’ve granted the 20,000th  wish  to a child living with a life-threatening illness. Every wish is as unique as the child making it, from finally getting to  cuddle with grandparents who live far away to hitting a puck with a favourite hockey player. In the often painful life of a seriously ill child, these wishes have made a tremendous difference. For more information on how to get involved in your community please go to childrenswish.ca
