Our vision is a Nunavut that has food sovereignty, and we strive to focus on solutions that strengthen people’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 and have developed unique tools and techniques for their harvest. A strong and unique food culture developed 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
