Summer food drive for Feed Nova Scotia
Last summer, we learned that Feed Nova Scotia was critically low on food supplies and had to turn people away from food banks. In response, the Dalhousie community rallied together and donated more than one tonne of much-needed supplies.
To avoid a similar situation this year, Feed Nova Scotia is proactively asking community members and organizations to host food drives and fundraisers throughout the month of July – and we’re hoping to show our support once again.
On Wednesday, July 12, Feed Nova Scotia donation boxes will be in buildings on all four Dal campuses for individuals and groups to make their donations. Our Facilities Management team will be collecting these donation bins on Friday, July 21 and delivering them to the Feed Nova Scotia warehouse that afternoon.
Individuals and groups are encouraged to drop off donations at any of the following locations at Dalhousie’s Halifax and Truro campuses:
- Studley Campus:
- Henry Hicks Building: main lobby
- Central Services Building: elevators (main floor)
- Dalplex: main desk (lower level)
