CBC Sounds of the Season

THUNDER BAY – Teamwork from CBC Thunder Bay’s Sound of the Seasons along with the Thunder Bay International Airport Authority, North Star Air, Wasaya Airways, Perimeter Air, Maintair, and the RFDA, with a lot of help from people across Thunder Bay, have led to a massive shipment of food heading north to First Nations communities.

In support of the CBC Thunder Bay Sounds of the Season, North Star Air is proud to be working together with the Regional Food Distribution Association to send food to the North. On Friday, Dec 15th, North Star Air delivered food to Eabametoong, Marten Falls, and Neskantaga communities in the North.

The Sounds of the Season initiative is to collect food to ship to First Nation communities where many families face challenges when it comes to access to affordable food.

“I understand that there are over 10,000 pounds of food that North Star Air is shipping to these First Nation communities and we are proud to play a small part of this food delivery system,” said Frank Kelner, CEO, and President of North Star Air.

Getting the food north helps families across the region. The efforts of all connected with this project deserve a hearty Meegwetch.
