STORIES OF PARTNERSHIPS, RESILIENCE AND POSITIVE CHANGE IN THREE FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES

“When I think of food sovereignty, I think of nations of people having the ability to feed entire families in the entire region, so that they can feed themselves the next year or the year after that, or even generations from now.” Rodney Contois, Aki Foods Director with Garden Hill First Nation, participants in Transformations 2018

OUR Programs


FIRST NATIONS FOOD SECURITY

CFTC has launched a new phase of our First Nations food security programming with generous funding provided by The Slaight Family Foundation. The Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds initiative is a national, comprehensive food security program with a mandate to partner with 20 new First Nation communities by 2020.

Recognizing that local partners are the most knowledgeable champions of their own community, CFTC will work with First Nation partners to achieve transformative, sustainable change through a combination of hands-on learning for students; consistent, nutritious, culturally appropriate meals; land-based learning and traditional food practices; nutrition education for students, families and community members; and the engagement of youth champions.
