Apply to the Country Food Distribution Program

Public Service Announcement

November 13, 2012

Nunavut wide

The Government of Nunavut wants to ensure that local food is available for local people.

That means affordable and nutritious country food like caribou, char, muskox and seal.

Hamlets, hunters and trappers’ organizations, non-profit corporations and societies can apply to the Government of
Nunavut’s Country Food Distribution Program.

They can get money to pay harvesters for country food to be distributed free to hungry people.

Funding can also pay for the establishment and operation of a country food market and community freezers.

We should all have what we need.

To apply, visit or call 1-888-975-5999.
