The Beatrice Wilson Health Center is hosting a food security program, and starting tomorrow, OCN grandparents who are the primary caregivers for grandchildren will be able to apply.
Food insecurity can significantly impact a child's long-term health and the ability to grow and learn.
The rate of food insecurity for grandparent-headed households is 60 percent higher than that of all households with children.
This program is being implemented to help support OCN children living on and off reserve.
Primary caregivers can fill out applications from the first of the month till the 19th at the OHA's location in the Otineka Mall.
