$4.5M to bolster COVID-19 isolation food supports program

The Government of Nunavut has allocated almost $4.5 million to help Nunavummiut access food hampers during COVID-19.

If you been advised to isolate because of COVID-19 or need food supports to be able to isolate safely, there is help available.

If you do not have friends, family or people to get food and supplies for you, please email IsolationSupports@gov.nu.ca or call 1-888-902-0872 to get the process started.

Please note, this is a program meant for Nunavummiut who need to isolate to minimize the spread of COVID-19. If you can ask someone to help, please do so first, before applying for this program.

Because of the volume of requests, it may be a few days before you can get a hamper. Please be patient while we do our best to get food and supplies to everyone who needs them most.

Stay healthy and safe, and follow all the public health measures. Your Actions; Everyone’s Health.
