Sealift room (food storage room). One perk that the Melansons can take advantage of that isn't available to everyone in Nunavut is the sealift: bulk buying of staple foods to bring down the high price of food to this remote area. It comes in via ship from Canada's southern provinces. The image is part of a collection of images and documentation for Hungry Planet 2, a continuation of work done after publication of the book project Hungry Planet: What the World Eats, by Peter Menzel & Faith D'Aluisio.
