Our goal is to provide food  for families in need in Gjoa Haven such as country food (frozen, dried, ground meat, ribs and filleted), caribou Meat, musk-ox meat and fish (char/trout) and other food items – dry goods, canned, frozen etc.


Housing crisis: overcrowded homes, homelessness, cost of living, unemployment, etc. Lack of funds to support collaboration due to other communities requesting for similar funds.
