Greater Blackville Resource Centre

Greater Blackville Resource Centre is a 100% volunteer operated registered charity with a clear vision – to assist persons in need and promote unity in the community.

We do this through various projects, but the majority of our effort goes into the operation of the Food Bank here in Blackville. The Food Bank does not receive regular financial support from any level of government and all revenue comes from our thrift store, fundraising activities, and generosity of the local community.

We are proud to say that with the help of our dedicated volunteers and community support we have been self-sufficient since first opening in 2012, and have been providing food boxes every month to those in need.

Our community projects have included the Community Food Mentors program, a Community Garden, Community Kitchen, and Soup’s On, which offered free home-cooked meals in the community.

2018/2019 Board of Directors
GBRC is run by a board of directors and a small group of dedicated volunteers.

Founder & President: Rev. Albertine LeBlanc     Co-Founder: John LeBlanc
