We combat food insecurity in Northern Canada
Northern communities pay on average 4 times more for everyday food. With temperatures averaging below -30°C, produce is nearly impossible to grow outdoors. This leaves only inefficient and costly methods of transporting produce into this part of our country. In Nunavut 35.1% of the population lives in severe food insecurity. Growing North’s original and primary focus is to alleviate food insecurity within Northern Canadian communities by improving the accessibility to food.
