In the event that the funds raised exceed the financial needs of the programs you are supporting, your contribution will be used for related efforts to support children and their families.

Food prices are up 9% across Canada this year.

In Indigenous communities, food prices were already 2.5 times higher than the national average.

For many families, this is a crisis that's making it extremely difficult to provide regular healthy food for their children.

Towards food sovereignty

Indigenous community partners are speeding up their efforts on re-establishing local food systems. That means going back to traditional ways of feeding children, families and communities all year long.

Traditional Foods

Traditional food harvesting activities like hunting, fishing, trapping, and gathering provide an inexpensive and healthy food source and provide an opportunity for inter-generational learning.

Our Indigenous community partners are creating new ways to keep local food growing all year long. But they can't do it alone. They need your help.

Your support makes a difference

School gardens provide children, parents, teachers and Elders with hands-on learning, fresh fruits and vegetables, and the opportunity for inter-generational learning.

Community kitchens bring children, parents, Elders and educators together to prepare and celebrate cultural traditions about food.

More than 270,000 meals and snacks are provided to children in Indigenous communities across Canada each year.

Food forests will be expanded this year to three new communities benefiting more than 11,000 community members with fresh produce.
