Core Recipe Project

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Nunavummiut eat more and more store-bought food, and want to learn how to better select and prepare healthy foods from stores.

The Government of Nunavut’s Department of Health, the North West Company, and Arctic Cooperatives Ltd. are working together to develop delicious and nutritious recipes.

The goals of the project are to:

  1. Enhance health promotion through partnerships between the Government of Nunavut’s Department of Health, food retailers, and community health workers.
  2. Promote nutritious foods and food-related skills in stores and in community health promotion programs.
  3. Create easy recipes that community members and programs can prepare and enjoy.


We plan to launch the set of 12 recipes in 2015 and feature one each month during the year.

(Strategy Action 2.2.2 Repeat and expand the Core Recipe project throughout Nunavut.)
