Registered Name: METRO FOOD BANK SOCIETY - NOVA SCOTIA
Business Number: 119039337RR0001
Our mission is to increase food security through food distribution, education, and collaboration.
We are a charity that supports a network of 144 food banks, meal programs, and shelters across Nova Scotia with almost 2 million kilograms of donated food each year. Through presentations, statistics, and stories, we use our voice to educate, raise awareness, and push for policy change. Increasing food security doesn’t happen in isolation. We build strategic partnerships to achieve results we can’t achieve on our own.
Because our trucks are on the road each morning, we're helping people meet their immediate need for food. When Nova Scotians don't have to worry where they will find breakfast, lunch, and dinner, good things happen and health outcomes improve. We also know food is about so much more than physical nourishment. It's also about comfort, hope, and sometimes a stepping stone to opportunity.
Food support is critical, but food alone won't solve hunger and poverty. Increasingly, we're investing resources to support long-term, sustainable change through education and collaboration.
Our vision is a province where no one goes hungry.
