Good Food Access Fund

Yellowknife Catholic Schools is pleased to announce it has received a grant of $20 000 from Community Food Centres Canada’s Good Food Access Fund. The grant has enabled Yellowknife Catholic Schools to support our students and families who are experiencing food insecurities . Funding is provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Local Food Infrastructure Fund, as part of the Food Policy for Canada. The Fund aims to strengthen food systems and facilitate access to safe and nutritious food for at-risk populations.

This support has allowed YCS to help families at a very stressful time by reducing food insecurity worries. All families have been incredibly appreciative of the support we have been able to provide. The method of support provided families with the freedom to choose their own food.
