Local Food Production

Local Food Production


We will explore and promote the potential for local food production in Nunavut.

Local food production means we grow, harvest, and distribute foods that we don’t normally produce in Nunavut. We can learn from creative projects in other northern communities that produce local vegetables, meats, and other foods.

Local food production can help increase food security and self-reliance.
