Food From The Heart

Facing the challenges.
Often when someone is diagnosed with a life threatening illness families are left struggling to make ends meet. The individual is no longer able to work, and family members may have cut back on work to stay home and provide care and comfort. Imagine dealing with financial hardship and life-threatening illness…
Unique to Colchester East-Hants, “Food from the Heart” provides Sobey’s grocery vouchers to local families facing end of life.

Making a difference.
The Colchester East Hants Hospice Society in partnership with local Sobey’s and Foodland stores campaign twice each year to have customers add a donation of $2 or more to their grocery bill. The program, developed four years ago by the Hospice Society, the Palliative Care Program, and local Sobey’s and Foodland stores, ensures 100% of all monies raised go directly to these families in our communities. Last year, we were able to provide over $20,000 in vouchers to support 36 families facing end of life – families from Tatamagouche, Milford, Rawdon, Shubenacadie, Stewiacke, Masstown, Truro and more.
