Food insecurity in remote, Indigenous communities remains several times higher than in more urban areas in Canada. Food insecurity is a common barrier for families to provide healthy meal options. True North Aid is proud to support sustainable food programs across the north, including providing families access to traditional and cultural food.

Supporting Food

Currently, True North Aid is supporting food sovereignty through programs such as From Bag to Bannock, the Ebb & Flow Food Bank, Siksika Chicken Program, Community Nutrition in Wuskwi Siphik and the Healthy Eating Programs.
