“Inuit have long lived to survive – it is in our blood to find food and help others when someone goes hungry. Inuit all over the north have understood the word ‘hunger’ from the past to this day. It is handled through patience, through acceptance, and through innovations. Hunger was fought by our ancestors, and we can fight it again today using different techniques.”

Get Involved

There are many things Nunavummiut can do to help improve food security, including:

  • Share food with community members who need it.
  • Volunteer with food banks, soup kitchens, breakfast programs, and other groups that support food security.
  • Spread the word through radio, social media, and conversations.
  • Write a letter to your MLA.
  • The Coalition encourages individuals or organizations who want to get involved to consider donating money rather than food to community-based food programs, as these programs demonstrate the best way to acquire and distribute food in their community.
