Get Support

Christmas can be a hard time of year. If you need support, please let us know. If you are living in HRM, please read the instructions below carefully on how to apply.


If you are not living in HRM, and you have questions on how to apply for support, please call your local food bank, or email


While we work hard to provide Christmas support for those who apply, because the program is based on the availability of resources in the community, we cannot guarantee it.
