Northern Manitoba Food, Culture, and Community Collaborative
Helping Northern Manitoban communities design local solution-oriented projects to address food insecurity and related issues.
The Northern Manitoba Food, Culture, and Community Collaborative was created to help Northern Manitoba communities design local solution-oriented projects that address regional issues of poverty, food insecurity, and related health issues. The collaborative is administered by Tides Canada and includes various charitable, government, and individual partners and advisors.
Since 2014, 54 diverse projects in 26 Northern Manitoba communities received more than $750,000 in grants thanks to the collaborative. Projects included boreal horticulture, northern beekeeping, community chicken coops, community greenhouses, and traditional food programs reconnecting people with country foods.
