The Melanson family (Peter and Pauline and kids) have Thanksgiving dinner with his parents at their house in Iqaluit. Pauline is a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and Peter works as a senior informatics technician for the Nunavut government. Because Pauline works for the RCMP they get subsidized housing in the community in which she works: the island community of Iglulit for 2.5 years and now Iqaluit, the largest concentration of people in the territory of Nunavut. 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.
