Feed Nova Scotia
Feed Nova Scotia first opened their doors in 1984 as the Metro Food Bank Society, with the mandate to provide emergency food relief within Metro Halifax. The volunteer staff served 12 member food banks and meal programs. In 2002, at the request of their member agencies, Metro Food Bank Society became the umbrella organization for food banks across the province. In 2005, Metro Food Bank Society was rebranded as Feed Nova Scotia. After over 30 years in operation, and now supporting 140 member agencies, they recognize the need is growing and they can’t feed their way out of it. While Feed Nova Scotia continues to address food insecurity by supplying emergency food support, they are also working to find long-term solutions to hunger and poverty in Nova Scotia.
