The Feeding My Family Facebook Group has been working hard to bring awareness to the fact that the HIGH COST OF FOOD is preventing many Northerners from living healthy, happy and productive lives. “From Northern Labrador in the east, to Northern Alaska in the west, we are using this group as a forum where Northerners can come together to work toward positive change, despite the distance that separates our communities”. In the spring and summer of 2012 Nunavut saw protests across the territory denouncing the high cost of food and the federal government’s denial of the food security problem faced by 70% of Inuit homes. Sounds interesting? Well, if you are free tomorrow, on December 4, at 1 PM ET – Eric Joamie and Leesee Papatsie (co founders) will be live in discussion. Register Here.
