Working to ensure none go hungry over Christmas in Igloolik

A volunteer in Igloolik receives a package at the airport to help spread some Christmas cheer in the community of about 1,800 on Tuesday, Dec. 17. Arctic Fresh, the Igloolik-based grocery distribution company, has partnered with the Igloolik Food Bank to prepare 400 Christmas hampers that will be distributed before the holidays. Each hamper includes the makings of a full Christmas dinner, a bannock pack, and a variety of fresh fruits. Contributors included Canadian North, Feeding Nunavut, Baffinland Iron Mines Corp., Nuna East Ltd., the Hamlet of Igloolik and the Qikiqtani Inuit Association. The Ottawa Food Bank also donated 628 pounds of food. (Photo courtesy of Arctic Fresh)
