How Your Ongoing Support Makes a Difference
Nutritious school meals matter so much to children like Scarlette.
Scarlette is a rambunctious nine-year-old who lives in Elsipogtog First Nation, a Mi’kmaq First Nations reserve in New Brunswick.
For many First Nations communities, access to healthy food is limited. Their remote locations, limited infrastructure and high delivery costs cause food prices to be higher than the national average.
In these communities, school meals are critical to ensuring children receive the nutrition they need to grow, learn and thrive. With full tummies, Scarlette and her friends have more energy, are better able to concentrate and have stronger memories, improving their educational outcomes.
This year, we need your support to feed more than 1,071 children through school nutrition programs in First Nations communities across Canada. Help ensure every child can have a healthy meal during the school day.
Help mothers like Abu grow their income — and lasting change.
Abu is a mother and farmer in Ghana. Before she participated in our climate and agriculture training program, she felt it would be impossible to grow enough food to feed her family because of the impacts of climate change.
Through the training she received, Abu learned how to grow and sell climate-resistant vegetables, as well as how to implement land preparation techniques and apply fertilizers. She also received irrigation support for when there is limited water.
Today, Abu has grown so much food that she can store a five-month supply of vegetables to feed her family. In fact, she has so much surplus she now earns income by selling her vegetables.
With this extra income, Abu has increased her farm size from just one acre to two and purchased a rice processing machine to help grow her family’s economic potential.
Last year, your support provided mothers and farmers like Abu with agricultural training, empowering them to improve their farming yields and ensure their children can thrive. This year please help provide training for 1,552 women farmers to help them increase their farming yields and feed their children today and for many years to come.
Fresh accessible food should always be available to communities like Jake’s.
Jake Ahenakew is the Food Sovereignty Coordinator in Ahtahkakoop First Nation, a Cree First Nations band government in Shell Lake, Saskatchewan. Jake works to combat the ever-growing costs to access what little fresh, healthy food the community can get.
Sustainable farming practices like food forests provide a continuous and accessible food supply. Food forests are focused on growing perennial fruits, vegetables and medicines that are self-sustaining once established. This means a food forest can feed families for generations while helping Indigenous communities re-establish food sovereignty.
Today, with your ongoing support and Jake’s efforts, Ahtahkakoop has access to fresh and locally grown cabbage, lettuce, corn, raspberries, strawberries and so much more. Jake is even able to offer fresh foods to the school, health clinic and community gatherings.
Together, with your support this year, we can help even more communities like Jake’s access fresh and affordable food. With your support this year our partners in Canada hope to grow 453 gardens.
