How You Can Help

 

 


FOOD SUPPLIES ARE LOW!

Last year Parker Street distributed over $2.5 million in food to those in need in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Currently our shelves are bare and we need your help to re-stock them. Non-perishable food donations are urgently needed. You can drop off food donations to our offices at 2415 Maynard Street in Halifax.
