About Food Depot Alimentaire:

Food Depot Alimentaire (FDA) was previously known as the Moncton Food Bank.

It opened the Peter McKee Center in Moncton which combines 3 community food banks under one building. This centre assists over 1,500 families in moving towards independence and self-sustainability through a variety of services and programs. These include a food bank, an on-site clothing thrift store, a community garden, community rooms and educational programming.
