The Wolfville Area Inter-Church Council has been working to address issues of hunger and poverty in Wolfville and the surrounding area since it was established in 1970. In 2007 WAICC opened the Wolfville Area Food Bank which operates out of the Wolfville Baptist Church. The Food Bank is run solely by volunteers, and operates successfully thanks to the support of local businesses, organizations and individuals who donate their time, money and food.
The Wolfville & Area Food Bank aims to provide not only food, but other resources, to those in need. Some of the supplied food comes from Feed Nova Scotia, or from community donations; however, the majority of food is bought with funds donated to WAICC.

July 6th and 20th
August 10th and 24th
September 7th and 21st
October 5th and 19th
