The Open Door Food Program was established in the spring of 2016 by a mother in our community who became aware of food insecurity in our area. Their mission is to eliminate hunger and improve the well being of St. Andrews, Bayside, Chamcook, and Bocabec communites through the distribution of grocery gift cards. This group is completely volunteer-driven and survive thanks to support from our community and business neighbours. In 2022, the organization made the thoughtful decision to establish an endowed fund with the Fundy Community Foundation which will provide them with ongoing stable annual support. The establishment of this fund was also supported by generous contribution from the J. T. Clark Family Foundation.
