NunatuKavut’s community freezer program is about giving back to the community. This program has steadily grown over the past few years.
It is open to NCC members who are not able to take advantage of our communal fishery program, which includes seniors (60+) and those with disabilities.
The program is currently available in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Cartwright, Black Tickle, Charlottetown, Port Hope Simpson, Mary’s Harbour, Lodge Bay, St. Lewis and Labrador West with access provided to surrounding communities where possible.
The freezer has a limited supply of items like bakeapples, redberries, char, cod, salmon and moose meat. These foods are provided until the community freezer runs out. Annually, we barter cod for char with the Nunatsiavut Government. In 2015, we traded 3,000 lbs of cod for char.
Open in each area for pickup on Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
* Please call ahead to ensure there is staff available to share food from the freezer on other days and times *
NunatuKavut has have been receiving positive feedback from our members regarding the quality of fish and other food items they receive. If you are looking for items from our community freezer, please contact:
