Belated Happy New Year from the Board of Directors of the Shepody Food Bank! We would like to take this opportunity to share with you some highlights from the past year.
Shepody Food Bank, located at the Albert County Community Health Centre in Riverside-Albert, serves the catchment area from the Village of Alma up to and including the Upper Albert Mines Road in Edgetts Landing, and the Caledonia Mountain Road from Riverside-Albert up to Route 910 in Rosevale.
We are open every Wednesday from 1-3pm, serving clients on a first-come, first-served basis. Clients may visit once a month for assistance and will receive six days' worth of food for each individual in the household.
In 2022, we served over 80 households comprising 170 individuals in need, giving out almost 23,000 meals. Almost 30% of the people we serve are minors and around 20% are seniors.
