Network of Agencies

We support a member network of 140 food banks, shelters, and meal programs across Nova Scotia.

Take a look and see who's in your community helping Nova Scotians in need.

Valley - Yarmouth | South Shore | Colchester - East Hants - Cumberland | Halifax Regional Municipality | Antigonish - Pictou - Guysborough | Cape Breton

At this time, please know we and our members are working to overcome challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are heartened that many members are working to stay open by adjusting their operating process and finding low-touch workarounds for providing support. We will do our best to keep our website resources up to date and encourage people looking for support to connect with a food bank ahead of time.
