After a first collaboration with Food Banks Canada during the pandemic last year, Nolinor Aviation is proud to announce that the partnership has been renewed for 2021.
For a second year in a row, Nolinor supported the humanitarian organization’s social mission by providing free air transportation for almost 20,000 pounds of food to Rankin Inlet.
Last Saturday, September 25, 2021, a Boeing 737-200 cargo plane transported the foodstuffs to Nunavut from its facilities at Mirabel Airport.
“Following our first experience, we were truly touched by the feedback and testimonials that we received from the Iqaluit region, and we spontaneously offered the organization a second free flight in 2021. This year, we’re happy to be able to give something back to one of our frequent destinations.”
– Marco Prud’Homme, President of Nolinor Aviation.
The Rankin Inlet region is very familiar with Nolinor Aviation’s fly-in fly-out service to the area’s mining industry. Nearly 12 tonnes of food were flown in for free to be distributed to people in the community.
Nolinor and all its employees are proud to contribute to the mission of Food Banks Canada, and in so doing to give back to the communities that have been welcoming Nolinor aircraft every day for many years.
“Facilitating the delivery of essential food supplies to the North is extremely challenging and costly. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Nolinor Aviation for working with us again this year, to get nutritious food to communities in need. Thank you for helping us move closer to our vision of a Canada where no one goes hungry and thank you for caring for your neighbours.”
– David Armour, Interim CEO, Food Banks Canada
We wish to thank the donors, as well as Food Banks Canada, for inviting us to contribute to this inspiring project.
