Did you know?
The Fredericton Food Bank has changed locations! We are now located at Greener Village Community Food Centre, 686 Riverside Drive in the beautiful Fredericton, New Brunswick.
New space makes room for new ideas and Our Greener Kitchen is one of them. Frederictonians of the Food Bank tell us that they are interested in feeding their families healthy, nutritionally sound meals while sticking to a budget. There’s a myth out there that people have to chose between eating good food that nourishes their families and inexpensive food. We are here to put an end to that myth. Good food IS affordable. In fact, it’s highly processed foods that raise the grocery bill through the ceiling.
So what keeps people from eating inexpensive meals? Part of the problem is lack of knowledge. Over the past few decades, the skills our grandmothers took for granted have been lost. One of our goals at Our Greener Kitchen is to bring that knowledge back to our own kitchens. This is where our teaching kitchen comes into play. If you wanted to learn about canning, preserving, or different cuisines, such as vegetarian, Indian or Asian, we offer classes! The Kitchen space is also available for rentals (parties, meetings, events) and we offer a dynamic catering menu!
Right now, we’re at work developing and testing recipes, new and old, to give to our community. At various times throughout the year, we’ll be handing out samples to our visitors. Our Greener Kitchen recipes will be posted here and will be available at the Food Bank.
We’re passionate about good food for everyone, so watch this space for the tasty ideas percolating in Our Greener Kitchen.
