Local Food Infrastructure funding for Nipissing First Nation

192 community-led projects across Canada are receiving federal funding to help address local food security, including one project in our area.  

Nearly $10 million is flowing nationally for equipment and infrastructure needs to help improve the accessibility of nutritious, local food. 

Nipissing First Nation is receiving $55,000.  

The money will be used to purchase a refrigerated van and industrial fridge. 

“As we continue our efforts to stabilize food prices and bring relief to Canadians, this new funding through the Local Food Infrastructure Fund (LFIF) will help put more healthy, local food on tables right across the country,” says Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.

Projects include community gardens and kitchens, refrigerated trucks and storage units for donated food, and greenhouses in remote and Northern communities.
