Proposed new kitchen for Moncton’s Boys and Girls Club hopes to provide more than just healthy meals
With a nutritious dinner on the menu every week at 5 p.m. and over 1,000 children a year sitting down at the table, the Boys and Girls Club of Moncton in Moncton, N.B., is looking to expand its kitchen.
“We have been serving food for almost six decades now,” said Moncef Lakouas, the executive director of the club.
“The number of kids we’re serving today is way more than we’ve ever seen before because of many reasons… The population increased from immigration in Moncton, COVID stress, cost of living, so we want to increase the space so we can serve more kids.”
The new kitchen campaign comes with a $300,000 price tag and the promise to provide way more than just healthy meals to hungry minds.

“The chef is going to have his own station and the mini chefs, which is the kids’ stations, eventually are going to be around so they can be able to follow the instructor and be able to have the means and infrastructure to cook their own meals,” said Lakouas.
