|Description & Services|
|Information||The mandate of the Food Bank is to assist people in a crisis situation. People are allowed to attend once per month, with additional food given for emergency situations.
People coming to the Food Bank for the first time need to bring their Health Card and cards for any others in the family that require food. There is also a Feed Nova Scotia application form to be filled in. You will be interviewed by one of the volunteers and given food according to the size of your family. Future monthly visits will only require the Health Card of the person attending. At the present time, anyone can come in on Tuesday and Friday afternoon to pick up bread without needing to see an interviewer.
Gift baskets are drawn for each special occasion such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Canada Day.
Some school supplies are available each year.
Birthday bags are also given to a family who has a child celebrating during the month.
