How Your Donation Will Make a Difference

Your donations have already achieved remarkable results, supporting:

4 food forests covering 27.75 acres

The harvest of 13,000+ lbs of food

Planting of 2,440 trees and 1,645 shubs

The engagement of 500 environmental stewards
(many are youth)

In honour of National Indigenous History Month and thanks to a group of generous members of our Leadership Giving Circle,your gift will be doubled until June 30!

Your donation will go twice as far in helping Indigenous communities build sustainable food systems and promote food security for children and families.

This isn't just about ensuring children have access to healthy, nutritious food, although that's certainly a noble goal.

It's about partnering with families and communities as they take control over their own health and well-being.

It's about creating a brighter, more hopeful future for every child in Canada.

Healing the Connection to the Land

"In the past, First Nations people were people of the land. Over time, some of those connections have been lost. We’re bringing back that traditional knowledge so we can go back to being producers and not consumers."

Frequently Asked Quetions

According to Statistics Canada, food insecurity affects 1.15 million -- or one in six -- Canadian children under age 18. That number has been on the rise since 2007.

Household food insecurity is strongly linked to poverty in Canada. Seventy per cent of households who rely on social assistance in Canada are food insecure. But it also greatly affects a significant portion of the Canadian workforce. Sixty per cent of food-insecure households rely on wages and salaries as their main source of income. Families working low-wage jobs simply can't earn enough to put good food on the table.
