ZOE IS THE FUTURE OF FOOD SECURITY IN NEYAASHIINIGMIING

My name is Zoe, I am eleven years old. My community of Neyaashiinigmiing is one of the most beautiful places that I’ve ever seen, but we do face some challenges accessing healthy food. Some people don’t always have enough money to get the food that they need. Healthy foods seem to cost more, especially out of season.

Sometimes kids will come to school without healthy foods.

That’s why I’ve been proud to be a part of our school gardening program. We have also been taught how to forage and harvest wild foods responsibly in our own community. I enjoy harvesting wild foods like leeks, morels, puffballs and apples, as well as going partridge hunting with my Papa. Sometimes, we give some of the food that we’ve gathered to other people in the community. This makes me feel good about myself.

I just want to thank Canadian Feed The Children for supporting our Healthy Living Program for so many years. We have been able to accomplish so much in our school and community because of you and all your faithful donors. Chi-miigwetch!

We sincerely thank our donors, whose continued support helps create a world where children thrive.
