We’re asking you to gather funds and food!
Once you’re registered you’ll receive instructions on how to set up your online fundraising page. We encourage you to reach out to family, friends, colleagues, clients and let them know that you’re doing The BIG Feed and ask for their support. We’ve set our goal at $25,000!
When gathering food donations here’s a list of most-needed food items to keep in mind. Feel free to have fun with the challenge and have a theme for your donations such as breakfast foods, or snacks, etc.
There are three drop-off locations to choose from:
Dartmouth: Kiwanis Grahams Grove Park @ 45 Grahams Grove
Halifax: Point Pleasant Park (far corner of Lower Parking Lot, near Black Rock Beach)
Bedford: DeWolf Park @150 Waterfront Drive
Each location will be accepting donations between 1:00pm & 4:00pm that day. Look for the Feed Nova Scotia trucks and volunteers.
Note: We ask that all participants respect the Public Health rules and only participate if you’re feeling well and symptom-free, and social distance throughout your walk and during drop-offs. All event volunteers will be wearing masks and using hand sanitizer. We ask that all participants use the provided hand sanitizer and wear your mask during drop-offs.
With no official start lines or set routes we encourage you to create an experience right for your team to bring you to your chosen drop-off location. Get creative with your delivery and feel free to use backpacks, wagons, or strollers.
Looking for a challenge? Walk 20kms and haul your 50lbs of food donations with you. Making this more of a fun family event? Walk around the block and have the kids fill their backpacks or wagons.
If you’re out of town and not able to come to a drop-off location you can still fundraise! Please register and set up an online fundraising page.
We’ll have prizes for the team with the most food donated, most money donated & furthest distance walked!
