Food security exists when people have access to food that is affordable, culturally preferable, nutritious, and safe, and when communities have the ability to participate in, and to influence food systems.
Northern Health (NH) has collaborated with First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) to create the Rural, Remote, and Indigenous Food Action Grant. This grant is intended to support community food action across northern BC with the goal of improving food security within the region.
This funding is part of a broader Provincial and Health Authority commitment to advance food security in BC. Grants are available to a maximum of $50 000.
