“It’s important that as a community, we take care of our neighbours who are impacted.” - Robert K. Irving, Co-CE0 of J.D. Irving, Limited
It is anticipated that there will be a 50% increase in the meals the Food Depot Alimentaire will need to provide across New Brunswick; with school closures and the cancellation of other youth programs, there is also a need to replace breakfast and other meal programs. In addition to increased demand, many food banks have lost their ability to raise funds. Thrift stores and other venues have had to close which has limited the opportunities. To help meet this pressing need J.D. Irving, Limited is donating $1 million to the Food Depot Alimentaire. The donation will go to New Brunswick’s network of 60 food banks across the province due to the financial hardships caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.Full Details
