Inuit Community-Based Food Initiatives

Food Security Map

Introducing Nuluaq

The Inuit Community-Based Food Initiatives Mapping Project

Food insecurity has reached crisis levels for many Inuit communities in Canada.
To address these challenges, there are many community-based initiatives that are playing an important role to improve Inuit food insecurity. These initiatives are very diverse and include food banks, land-based programs, and community kitchens. They also employ a range of approaches from supporting nutritional needs, teaching traditional skills, and strengthening social connections around food.

Recently ITK, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami launched a website to map the programs that are contributing to food security in Inuit regions.
