In Northern First Nations across Canada, the cost of food is high and the quality is low. Aki Energy works with First Nations to increase access to healthy, affordable food, with an emphasis on working with communities to build strong, sustainable local food systems. 

The video below profiles the Meechim Farm, a collaboration between Aki Energy and Garden Hill First Nation in Northern Manitoba that is aiming to grow and raise healthy local food for the community. Projects like the Meechim Farm work to find solutions to poverty and diabetes while creating long term employment and sustainable economic development in the community.
