1 out of 6 Manitobans are food insecure, meaning they don’t have enough money to buy the food they need. In Northern Manitoba, this number rises significantly; nearly one-half of Indigenous people living on remote reserves are food insecure. Rising inflation and food supply- chain issues only exacerbate this.
Our core philosophy is to nurture long-term strong partnerships with Northern Indigenous communities to support community-led food initiatives. We employ our partners and empower them to bolster their own community food landscape through self-determination.
As the bridge of food security work in the province, we are in a unique position to use our strong connections with Northern Indigenous Communities and other food security partners to support impactful food security efforts.
