Feeding Nova Scotia 

Considering today is National Food Day, we remember those who struggle all year wrong to put food on the table, or maybe don’t even have a table to put food on. We spoke with Feed Nova Scotia’s Bill Delany last Christmas season and he reminded us that hunger is a 12-month-a-year issue.
