The Arctic Rose Christmas Food Program
What began in 2012 as the Arctic Rose Fund, then the Arctic Rose Project – an annual Christmas Food bank campaign to help give families living in northern communities some relief over the holidays – became the impetus the inspired Susan Aglukark to establish the Arctic Rose Foundation.
“The campaign is a once a year gift to northern based food banks that not only provides some relief during the holidays, it also gives families a sense of dignity which is often lacking in our northern communities due to food insecurity and poverty, especially over the Christmas holidays.”
With the support of the Arctic Co-Op, Christmas Food program has raised cash and corporate donations to send to send thousands of pounds of non-perishable food items to northern food banks in Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet, Cambridge Bay, Arctic Bay and Arviat.
In 2019, 200 food hampers were created and distributed in Arctic Bay, Nunavut as a result of the annual campaign. Thank you to our partners: Taqqut Arctic Coop, Baffinland Iron Mines and Calm Air
