Niqinik Nuatsivik Nunavut Food Bank
The Niqinik Nuatsivik Nunavut Food Bank serves Iqaluit as well as provides outreach to other community food banks on an as-needed basis. The food bank receives no funding from the government. The Iqaluit food bank has been able to exist because of amazing relationships with large suppliers and from donations from people like you. Currently the level of food donation allows the food bank to open once every two weeks. The food bank is 100% volunteer run. Both the volunteers and the community would appreciate any support you are able to give!
Direct Affiliate of Food Banks Canada, and a Registered Charity
A recent CBC News article focussing on the Iqaluit soup kitchen and food bank wrote, “The high cost of living has forced more and more families to turn to the local food bank. Stephen Wallick, chairman of the board of the Niqinik Nuatsivik Food Bank, said it started out in 2001 serving about 30 families. Today, he said, as many as 120 families come looking for food and supplies every two weeks”.
