COVID-19 and Food
Accessing food has become more challenging for many people during the pandemic. The municipality is addressing food insecurity during COVID-19 by:
1. EMERGENCY FOOD DISTRIBUTION
The municipality is supporting emergency food distribution by redeploying staff to help with the Mobile Food Market’s food packs and emergency hampers. Check out how the Mobile Food Market is supporting access to healthy and affordable food.
2. FOOD PRODUCTION
We've been working to support growing food at home through the distribution of seeds, garden packs and container gardens. Email us for more information on this project.
SHARE YOUR FOOD STORY - we would like to hear about your experiences with food during COVID-19, to better understand and inform future action.
The Halifax Regional Municipality is an active member in Canada’s Food Communities Network, which is sharing resources and ideas for increasing food security during COVID-19.
