Non-profit organizations, societies and municipal organizations can apply for funding for projects that:

  • Contribute to the development, salaries, rent and/or continuation of a food security project.
  • Aim to increase the ability of Nunavummiut to improve their own food security through life and food skills development.
  • Encourage parents and children to learn and build food and life skills together.
  • Reduce barriers to food access.

Up to 250,000 is available for food centres that provide multiple food-related services and programs with dedicated space for public access.

For an application package, please contact Michael Angnakak, Food Security Advisory at foodsecurityapplications@gov.nu.ca or call 867-975-5407.

Please note the deadline to apply is September 30, 2022, at 5 p.m. (EDT).

The Nunavut Food Security Coalition is a collaborative group of Government departments, Inuit organizations, non-governmental organizations and the private sector working together to improve food security in Nunavut.
