Our Mission Shepody Food Bank strives to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community, and fosters respect for diversity and inclusion.
The Shepody Food Bank family – clients, volunteers and board of directors – would once again like to extend our deepest gratitude to the management and staff of Hopewell Rocks for their continued generosity and community spirit.
Albert County is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty – woodlands, mountains, valleys, waterfalls and, of course, the rising and falling tides of the Bay of Fundy. One of the iconic landmarks, Hopewell Rocks, attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, from all over the globe.
Loblaw Companies Ltd. has made an offer of a $25 gift card that can be used at all of their affiliated stores (such as the Atlantic Superstore). The card is available to every Canadian, 19 years or older. If you wish to 'pay it forward', our local food bank 'Shepody Food Bank' would gladly accept your donation. Here are a few things you should know:
In 2017, with the support of generous donors and hard-working volunteers, the Shepody Food Bank gave out more than 25,000 meals in addition to providing food to Riverside Consolidated School.
Community Partnership is evident at Forest Dale Home in the community of Riverside-Albert with the non-profit organizations Foods of the Fundy Valley and Shepody Food Bank!
Shepody Food Bank, located at the Albert County Health and Wellness Centre in Riverside-Albert, serves the catchment area from the Village of Alma up to and including the Upper Albert Mines Road, as established by the New Brunswick Association of Food Banks. With the month of December yet to be figured in, to date we have served 94 households comprising 224 individuals, for a total of over 28,000 meals in 2015. We also send weekly food contributions to the Riverside Consolidated School for their breakfast and other meal programs.
