The Fundy Interchurch Food Bank, a member of the Kentville, New Minas and Area Council of Churches is a volunteer organization that is committed to providing emergency food relief to individuals and families in an area generally comprising part of Greenwich, Port Williams, New Minas, Kentville, Coldbrook and surrounding areas.

We continue to see significant increases each year in the amount of clients served. Over 2010, there were 2735 family/individual visits. This is over 50 clients a week!

As a Christian community we strive live our faith as a supportive church community. Our purpose is to serve those who are in need and our volunteers work to keep our shelves full and our doors open. We are thankful for the community support and donations for without them we could not feed the hungry in our community.

Our leadership is comprised of representatives from most of the local churches in the areas of Alton, Aldershot, Coldbrook, Kentville and New Minas. There are Directors who meet regularly to manage the running of the Food Bank and a contingent of dedicated volunteers who receive food, stock shelves, pack food, complete intake assessments, and manage the office as well as inventory supplies.

Thank you to all of you who help with organizing food drives for us!

Our New Building

We received enough funding to building a stand alone facility that provides much needed food storage and helps our volunteers to work and serve in a healthy and up to date environment. Thank You to all the many volunteers and community partners who have contributed to make this a reality.

  How to be a regular donor

We can set up a regular giving gift through our banks. This is just like a regular transfer of funds from your account to ours. This way we can better budget through our lean times and do better food planning.

  Host a Food Drive

It is easy to do. Contact our office, let us know the time and date of your drive, your intended target area and population. Promote the event through notices, media or posters.

  Want to Volunteer?

Our director volunteers come from local church representatives and members at large. Our on-site volunteers are committed to one shift a week, once per month. We also need volunteers who are willing to do regular food pick-ups and special deliveries as required. We also need volunteers for special events.

  Best Foods to Donate

We receive fresh produce and pantry storage items. We have a constant requirement for bread, pasta, rice, milk products, eggs, frozen meat, canned vegetables, canned soups, and personal toiletry items like tooth paste, shampoo etc. If you are donating to a food drive, not directly to our food bank, non-perishable items are best.
