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.
A large percentage of Nunavummiut are experiencing food insecurity today. There are many contributing factors to the issue of food security in Nunavut.
Understanding these factors is key to our ability to support our community and work towards our vision.
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.
