We’re on a mission to overcome the financial, educational, and systemic barriers of good food in Nunavut.
Our vision is shaped by the Community Food Centre model pioneered by the national organization to which we belong, Community Food Centres Canada.
Good food in a welcoming environment is key to improving lives and providing other supports.
Navigating our modern food environment with confidence is important not just for healthy living, but for personal empowerment.
We motivate our community around issues that affect them and make their voices heard.
This year, like the last few years, has been a year of great change and uncertainty. Since the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic and its variants, a major water crisis in Iqaluit, as well as ongoing and intermittent boil water advisories throughout the territory, the resilience of Nunavummiut is palpable as always. With worsening economic pressures raising inflation and the cost of living continuing to rise nationwide, Nunavummiut remain at the forefront of this struggle. As a result of these economic and environmental changes, this year QCFC has seen some of the highest numbers of meals delivered than we have ever seen before, which should be ringing alarm bells nationwide.
We improve access to good food by supporting local harvesting, preparation, education, training, and advocacy. Over the years we have provided:
