Rankin Inlet continues to be the centre of debate over hunger in the Arctic.

It all began when APTN Investigates revealed people in the community are scrounging the town landfill looking for nutritious food.

Part of the problem is the high cost of food and a program supposed to help called Nutrition North.

APTN’s Kent Driscoll is in Rankin Inlet to learn more about the on-going scandal.
