About

For more than a decade, FYFB been delivering a program of integrated services focused on reconnecting people with our community. We do this by working with partners who share our vision to:

Feed the hungry - provide the basic nutritional requirements to individuals and families in need. Help people get on track - provide counselling, training and advocacy to help people find jobs, safe housing and appropriate social/community programs.

Core Programs & Services

Our Food Program provides a three-day supply of groceries, consistent with the Canada Food Guide, to low income individuals and families within our community.

Our Counselling & Advocacy program prevents homelessness and eliminates hunger by assisting our clients to resolve the underlying issues affecting them. Our volunteers are trained counsellors including lawyers, accountants and other professionals.

Our Community Drop-In Centre delivers a range of personal services in a safe environment including meals through a community kitchen, internet/computer access along with clothing and books.

Our Community Vitality program helps engage our client base with the broader community through economic development initiatives, life-skills/nutrition classes, computer training, special events and a community garden.
