This will be the 18th year 1st Fredericton Baden Powell Service Association has undertaken a food drive for the Fredericton Community Kitchen. In April of every year, their group obtains permission from the city of Fredericton to canvass the neighborhood of roughly 1,000 homes on the Hill in Fredericton between Smythe and Regent Streets and Dundonald and Montgomery Streets. People are asked to donate non-perishable food items and high efficiency detergents (Tide and Sunlight for example).
Wednesday, April 18th, the Timber Wolves and Otters (children aged 5-10) will be delivering flyers and grocery bag to residences in the area. The flyer explains the food drive and encourages people to fill the grocery bag with items the Community Kitchens need and place it on their door step for pick up on Saturday morning April 21, 2018. On Saturday morning April 21, 2018 starting at 10:30 AM their group will pick up bags seen on door steps and deliver them to the Fredericton Community Kitchens.
This project supports the Fredericton Community Kitchens and supports the efforts of the BPSA as they strive to encourage young people to serve their community. 1st Fredericton BPSA is a scouting organization that is sponsored by the Brunswick Street Baptist Church here in Fredericton. Thank you to the Fredericton Direct Charge Co-op for supplying grocery bags for this project every year.
