Feed Nova Scotia COVID 19 Food Box Program

 

On May 25, Feed Nova Scotia launched a short-term initiative that provides home delivery of food to Nova Scotians who need food support and can't get to a food bank or other food support programs. It's called Feed Nova Scotia's COVID-19 Food Box Program. Our priority now is to make sure everyone who could benefit from the program knows about it. 

They are busy packing food boxes, and want to get them to you.

Feed Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 Food Box program is a short-term initiative to provide home delivery of food to Nova Scotians who can't get to a food bank or other food support programs.

If this sounds like your situation, please call 211 on weekdays between 8am and 8pm and they’ll help determine if this program is a good fit.
