Have a look at Michele Hopkins as she traveled to Bearskin and Caribou Lake for a community visit. Michele was in Thunder Bay for the Nishnawbe Aski Nation Reclaiming Our Right To Food Self-Determination meeting during the summer.
Michele joined a group of people who are committed and passionate about finding solutions that address needs in northern communities experiencing food insecurity related to high food cost, poor quality food, low food variety and difficult food growing conditions. This visit highlighted some of the conditions experienced in these communities that contribute to reduced quality of life and health outcomes related to food insecurity. The Bridge hopes to support better health outcomes by preparing and supporting northern communities to offer the Healthy Together program for families.
