Register your Team:

Register and tell us a little bit about yourself and your team’s plans. Registration is free.

Funds raised through The BIG Feed event support Feed Nova Scotia in their ability to work toward long-term solutions to food insecurity in Nova Scotia and to help Nova Scotians have access to food in their time of need.

1. Register Your Team

Register yourself and your team (the more the merrier, now that we’re allowed to gather in larger numbers!). Corporate and Friends & Family teams are welcome. There is no registration fee for this event. All individual team members must register for insurance purposes.

2. Set up your Fundraising Page & Gather Donations

We’re asking you to gather funds & food!
Once you’ve registered you’ll receive instructions on how to set up your online fundraising page. We encourage you to reach out to family, friends, colleagues and clients to let them know you’re doing The BIG FEED, and ask for their support. We’ve set our goal at raising $25,000! Check out our list of most-needed food items at the bottom of this page to help you plan. Have fun with the challenge and consider having a theme for your donations such as breakfast foods or snacks.

3. Build Your Own Experience

With no official start line or set routes, we encourage you to create an experience with your team to get you to the Dartmouth Commons. Looking for a challenge? Walk 20 kms and haul your food donations with you. Making this a family-friendly experience? Walk around the block and have the kids fill their backpacks, strollers or wagons with food donations. Consider crossing the harbour by walking the MacDonald Bridge or taking the ferry. Get creative with your delivery method and have fun!

If you’re out of town and not able to be with us in person, you can still fundraise and build your own experience! Please register and set up your online fundraising page.

4. Weigh in!

We will be accepting donations at the entrance of the Dartmouth Commons located on the corner of Wyse Rd. and Thistle St. between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm on October 17th. Look for the Feed Nova Scotia truck and check-in station, where we will weigh your food.

4. Strive For A Prize

Team Feed Nova Scotia is challenging you to set your sights on a prize! Prizes will be rewarded to winning teams within the two categories Corporate and Friends & Family. To decide which teams win The BIG Feed organizers will look at:

• Most money donated to Feed Nova Scotia
• Most food donated to Feed Nova Scotia
• Furthest distance travelled
• Greatest team spirit

Offline Donations

Online donations are much easier for most but if you receive offline donations collect and track them in the offline donation sheet. Please ensure all cheques are written out to Feed Nova Scotia and bring them and any cash with you on walk day.

All monetary donations will receive a tax receipt from Feed Nova Scotia.

Please note we will be abiding by the COVID-19 Public Health regulations of the day during our event.
