Halifax, NS, July 19, 2016 – SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts is pleased to announce that its Homewood Suites by Hilton® Halifax-Downtown and Hampton Inn by Hilton™ Halifax-Downtown are accepting food donations to help Feed Nova Scotia address a critical shortage of food. The two hotels are accepting donations now until 12:00 p.m. on July 29.
The mission of Feed Nova Scotia, a registered charity, is to feed Nova Scotians who are in need and to reduce that need. The agency distributes 2 million kilograms of donated food to its member network of 147 food banks and meal programs across the province. Feed Nova Scotia also supports members as they build capacity to serve their communities, and helps raise awareness of the challenges hunger and poverty create each day for thousands of Nova Scotians.
“Feed Nova Scotia is critically low on food, so we are encouraging guests and members of the community to make a donation at our two Halifax hotels,” says Steve Giblin, President and CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts.
Feed Nova Scotia says its most critical needs currently are canned meat, soups and stews, canned vegetables, cereal, pasta and pasta sauce.
