A Member of Feed Nova Scotia

Take a deep breath, we're in this together!  It can be hard to ask for help, but we're here to support you. 

When arriving to the Rainbow Foodbank you will be asked a series of questions to register you.  Please bring with you a piece of ID for every member of your household and if possible a piece of mail with your name and home address on it. 

Our position is that no one needs to know your financial or personal situation for you to  receive support.  We are here to help without judgment.


Rainbow Foodbank serves community members once a month on a designated Wednesday of each month. During registration you will receive a list of distributions dates for food hamper pickup. (Please see below) In your hamper you can expect 3-5 days of food per person in your household. 

We understand there are emergency situations and we will do our best to provide support for those situations. Please call ahead so we can arrange a hamper pick up if you're in need of emergency service. 902-885-2300
