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 ns.211.ca 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.

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.
