Find food

We distribute food to 140 food banks, shelters, soup kitchens, and meal programs. We're not a food bank ourselves, but we can help you find support.

Food banks and meal programs are here to help
Food banks and meal programs are available in communities across the province. If you need food, visit or call 211. They’re available 24/7 to help connect you with resources in your community. You can also use our Find Food tool below for information on food banks and meal programs. If you've never accessed support, learn more about what to expect.

COVID-19 Food Box program
Feed Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 Food Box program is a short-term initiative that provides home delivery of food to Nova Scotians who need food support and can't access a food bank or other food support program. If this sounds like your situation, call 211 weekdays between 8am and 8pm and they’ll help determine if this program is a good fit.

Each food box contains non-perishable items to help provide support for up to seven days for one person. Households with one person receive one box. Households with two or more people receive two boxes. The number of boxes was recently adjusted to help manage resources and to align with current self-isolation requirements set out by public health. We aim to deliver within two business days, but some deliveries are taking longer due to increased demand. 

Find a food bank or other food support program near you.

Where you access a food bank is based on where you live. If you are accessing a location for the first time or don’t see an agency near you, please call 211 for support.
