Country Food Guidelines

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Country food plays an important role in Nunavut’s food system and a healthy choice. But there are barriers to serving country food in culturally appropriate ways in certain facilities and programs.

The Department of Health is working with the Nunavut Food Security Coalition to develop country food policies and procedures that make it easy and safe for government-funded facilities and programs to serve the country foods they want, however they want.
