FCC funding for school food security programs in Indigenous communities

First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities have always been involved in agriculture and food. FCC has over 100 offices across Canada and we support communities across all Treaty, traditional, unceded and un-surrendered territories. 

As part of our commitment to Drive Away Hunger, FCC provides funding for school-based food assistance programs benefiting Indigenous children. These programs will be:

  • in remote or rural Canadian communities;
  • in Indigenous communities;
  • or in public schools where at least 50% of the school population is Indigenous.

In general, submitters should request $1000.00. However, if your (umbrella) organization will allocate the funding among several schools (for example, seven schools covered within one tribal council) you may request up to $1000.00 per school. Eligible uses of funding include but are not limited to:

  • purchase, transportation and distribution of nutritious food
  • purchase, installation or repair of equipment needed for the program
  • costs related to implementing programs

If your request is accepted, unless otherwise agreed to in advance and in writing, there are no reporting requirements tied to the funding.

Eligible for funding:

  • First Nation, Inuit or Métis government/community group/tribal council
  • School
  • Registered charities with the Canada Revenue Agency or non-profit organizations

NOT eligible for funding:

  • Religious groups
  • Political groups
  • Individuals
  • For-profit entities
  • Private schools and daycares
  • Debt reduction
  • Organizations that do not pass FCC's background check
