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

COMMUNITIES IN ACTION
Close to 300,000 people are benefiting from CFTC donor investments in food security, education and capacity building programs. Read more about the remarkable community catalysts who have turned these investments into dramatic improvements in their own and their children’s lives, and in their communities around the world.
WITH FOOD SECURITY PROJECTS
The Resilient and Sustainable Livelihoods Transformation (RESULT) project in northern Ghana, and Market-Led Improved Livelihoods in Eastern Amhara Region (MILEAR) in Ethiopia, funded generously by Global Affairs Canada and CFTC’s donors, support smallholder farmers to achieve increased food security, improved agricultural production, better nutrition and greater income in some of the world’s most impoverished and climate-challenged communities.

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.
