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. But Feed Nova Scotia and our member food banks and meal programs are here to help. 

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, 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 up-to-date information on food banks and meal programs. If you've never accessed support, learn more about what to expect.

Can’t access food banks and meal programs?
While most food banks and meal programs are still open with processes in place to safely serve their communities, not everyone is able to access them 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, please call 211 on 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.
