Find food

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

Being food insecure is stressful at any time, and COVID-19 is creating new challenges for lots of people. Feed Nova Scotia and our member food banks and meal programs are here to help. 

Food support over the holiday season
Many food banks and meal programs have reduced hours during the month of December. If you need food, visit or call 211 to find out holiday hours of agencies in your community. 211 is available 24/7 to help connect you with resources. Please note that Feed Nova Scotia will be closed for the holidays on December 24 at 1pm and we will reopen at 8am on Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

Food banks and meal programs are safely providing food support
Most of our member agencies are open, with processes in place to safely provide food support. 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 helps fill the gap
We know that some people can't access food banks and meal programs right now. Feed Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 Food Box program is a short-term initiative to provide home delivery of food to Nova Scotians who need food support and can't access a food bank or other food support programs. 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.


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.
