The Soda Creek Indian Band (SCIB) recently received COVID-19 funding specifically for food security for on-reserve members.
Part of the funding is being used to provide freezers to on-reserve members, multiple of which were distributed to community members on Sept. 4.
Kukpi7 (Chief) Sheri Sellars says knowing the on-reserve members will have greater food security provides some valuable peace of mind.
“It’s great that we were able to do this for our on-reserve members but our off-reserve members need help too. This is why we’re going through the Treaty process towards self-government. We want to have full control over our finances and how we serve members.”
For any off-reserve members who need help, Sellars reminds them that the Northern Shuswap Tribal Council’s NStQ off Reserve Food Supplement Program is still available.
A second delivery of freezers is expected this week for the on-reserve members who haven’t gotten on yet.
