Back-to-School Appeal

Let's help every kid start off on the right foot.

Back-to-school season should be a time of excitement—a fresh start full of joy.

But for thousands of parents and guardians in Nova Scotia, August and September bring stressful trips scouring thrift stores and ramped up anxiety as they face the daunting task of fueling their kids with a nutritious breakfast and a packed lunch.

Your gift today will help make sure food and support is available when it's needed at food banks across the province. This means a happy, healthy day for kids and a stress-free one for those who love and take care of them. We'll also put your gift to work, as we advocate for meaningful policy changes like increased income assistance and affordable housing so parents and guardians don’t have to rely on charity and can provide for their families in a dignified way.

Thank you for recognizing the impact of food insecurity on our children and for refusing to accept it as the status quo.
