Skuppah Indian Band - Food Security Centre

The proposed project is the construction of a Food Security Centre: a new building to house a community kitchen, walk-in freezer and fridge and food storage areas to increase the food security of the local residents.  An outdoor food preparation area will also be part of the construction for this project. The Food Security Centre will provide a space for the community to reconnect with their culture and provide training for traditional food preparation.

Project works include:

  • Construction of a ~102 m2 (~1100 ft2) building housing a kitchen, walk in freezer, walk in fridge, food storage areas, washroom and showers.
  • Construction of ~215 m2 (~2324 ft2) of outdoor prep area with roof and open siding
  • Construction of ~149 m2 (~1600 ft2) carport and garden equipment storage space
  • Site servicing including water service, wastewater system, lot grading and access road
  • Purchase and installation of emergency generator
  • Installation of electrical, mechanical and plumbing
  • All other related works

The total project (buildings and landscaping etc.) footprint is estimated at ~2024 m2, with ~415 m2 of vegetation will be cleared in a developed area including some trees.  Excavation is required. There is an existing outdoor skating rink which will be removed prior to the construction of the new buildings.

This project takes place on the Inklyuhkinatko No. 2 Reserve of the Skuppah Indian Band near Lytton, British Columbia. The closest waterbody is ~40 m away.
