Non-Perishable Food Items Needed

You may have plans to donate food this holiday season.

Peter McKee Community Food Centre General Manager Christine Taylor says there are items they are usually short of, “Cereal, oatmeal, meat, cheese, pasta, pancake mix can serve a few meals, and a box of rice will go a long way.”

Monetary donations help fill the 1700 food boxes to be delivered as a part of the 30 Days of Caring campaign.

Boxes will be packed on December 19, 20 and 21st, and then delivered to each of the families.

Volunteers will be needed at the Moncton Coliseum to make those deliveries.

Non-perishable food donations help keep the shelves stocked into the New Year.

Taylor says, “We’ll be closed for the few days in between Christmas and the New Year, but people will come in last minute, some of them who have never used the food bank. Our shelves will get depleted very quickly. When we reopen in the New Year, there is going to be a need for food.”

Donations can be dropped off at the Peter McKee Community Food Centre, at Food Depot Alimentaire or at other participating locations around Greater Moncton.
