Nunavut communities finding work arounds to serve breakfast to students

Communities across the Nunavut territory are finding unique ways to help feeds students who would normally receive a meal in school.

Seventy per cent of Nunavut Inuit school students go hungry at some point of the year – 25 per cent of them regularly.

To help, Nunavut run breakfast programs and foodbanks to help but the COVID-19 pandemic closed those down.

While Nunavut doesn’t have any positive cases of the virus, it still has restrictions in place.

That forced people to find another way to help.
