Our vision is a Nunavut that has achieved food sovereignty. We focus on solutions that strengthen Nunavummiut's ability to acquire the food they want and need.
The territory known today as Nunavut is a land of abundance. Inuit have subsisted on the flora and fauna for generations. Unique tools and technology have been developed to sustain their food system—a strong and unique food system that exists without the need for agriculture or animal husbandry.
Access to good, healthy food is a basic human right. QCFC works to improve food access, food skills and advocacy in Iqaluit and Nunavut as a whole—one meal at a time.
Food costs in Iqaluit are over double the national average
Over half of households in Nunavut are food insecure
Only 1/6 of daily calorie intake in Nunavut comes from local country food
