Who We Are

Food First is a registered charity whose mission is to support nutrition education programs in schools with the goal of encouraging a healthy population of children and youth for future generations.

The Issues

The problems associated with nutrition are so large that even communities doing relatively well still need help. Recent studies indicate that nearly 70% of Northern students do not consume enough fruits and vegetables for optimal health; as well, many do not reach the daily dairy servings recommended by the Canada Food Guide, putting them at risk for cancers, diabetes, osteoporosis and other chronic diseases. Children are too often overfed and undernourished.

Inadequate nutrition leads to poor concentration, classroom behavioural issues, higher absenteeism, low self esteem and reduced scholastic success. Healthy food provides the nutrients children need to be attentive and enthusiastic in school, increasing their ability to concentrate, learn and develop into outstanding adults.

What We Are Doing

Funders can choose where they want to see their funding spent, the NWT, Nunavut or even a specific region, town or school. The need varies from community to community, so we can work with you to ensure your donations go where you’d like.
