The Qajuqturvik Food Centre (previously the Iqaluit Soup Kitchen) was founded in 2002, initially as a project of the Anglican Church. In 2008, the board of directors registered under the Societies Act as the Qajuqturvik Society, a non-denominational, distinct entity. In 2009, the Qajuqturvik Soup Kitchen moved its operations into new facilities, a stand-alone building with a fully equipped industrial kitchen, a 90-person dining room, public washrooms, and wheelchair access.

Starting as a two-person operation, we now have a roster of around 30 regular volunteers, including a 10 person board of directors. Although we are an independent society, the Anglican Church continues to support us by letting us lease its building.
