Food Bank Program
Brunswick Street Mission is part of a network of food banks supported by Feed Nova Scotia. Need to access our food bank?
NEW!!: We no longer require you to pre-register. Anyone in need of food can get support Tuesday through Friday from 9am to 2pm. Households can access the food bank every three (3) weeks.
Eligibility: Available to HRM households dealing with low income. We ask all guests to bring Nova Scotia health cards for each family member and proof of address.
Note: You must bring your own shopping or reusable bags. We do not provide boxes or bags that guests can take with them.
Data Collection: You will be asked to sign a paper agreeing to be entered into a database maintained by Feed Nova Scotia, which ensures everyone receives a fair share of the available food.
By providing groceries, we can make a huge difference to the volume and nutritional quality of food available to a family. Almost half of our clients are experiencing a temporary crisis and we may only meet them once. However many families who rely on income or disability assistance have no choice but to use food banks regularly to get by.
Each year over 2,000 individuals access our weekly food bank.
