Northern Canada is home to approximately 120 remote Indigenous communities where the only way in or out is by air. The price of food, especially nutritious or perishable foods, can be extreme—a typical household of two adults and two children spends an average of $2,800 on food per month. Unsurprisingly, between 24 and 68% of each community experiences some form of food insecurity compared to the Canada-wide average of 13%.
