The Northern Manitoba Food Culture and Community Collaborative is looking to support projects in the north.
Cheryl Antonio with the NMFCCC tells us about the collaboration.
"The Northern Manitoba Food Culture and Community Collaborative is an innovative collaborative of northern community people, northern advisors, funders and organizations working together to foster healthier and stronger communities in Northern Manitoba through improved access to healthy foods and the development of resilient local economies."
Antonio went on to say that the NMFCCC strives to work with partners while observing northern cultures, values, strengths, and challenges.
The collaborative was created for community members who needed relational and network allies, and because the north is underserved by the charitable community.
The NMFCCC believes that by sharing experiences, resources, and learning while focusing on northern Manitoba, they hope to bring better access to good food, improved local health, stronger local economies and food systems and the development of local capacity and community champions.
There is a call for proposals for anyone interested in hosting a community project that includes food, culture, and community economic development.
There are over 55 projects across northern Manitoba being worked on already and the deadline to submit a proposal is November 24th, go to NMFCCC.ca to learn more.
