Do You Need Assistance?

For families who are unable to access food during the school closures, Feed Nova Scotia and local food support programs are here to help. Food banks and local food programs are open and safely supporting communities. 211 online is available 24/7 to provide more information and connect you to your nearest option. If you are unable to access food support from a local food program, Feed Nova Scotia's COVID-19 Emergency Food Box Program is available. Call 211 weekdays between 8am and 8pm to see if the program is a good fit.
