From Grand Portage, Minn., on the Canadian border to Navajo Nation, and Molokai, Hawaii, to New York City, Native peoples of North America have been celebrating our connection to land, food and community for generations. Farm to school is a new term for an ancient concept: that we learn about people, place and tradition, and care for our physical and spiritual health through food.
Working with Native partners, the National Farm to School Network is exploring the unique opportunities for and challenges of expanding and sustaining farm to school in Native communities across the country. From developing school menus that include traditional foods like blue corn and bison to working with Native producers, planting heritage orchards, and connecting classroom education with tribal seed banks, together we are breaking down barriers and reinvigorating traditional foodways.
"In Indian country, food is not just about nutrition. It's about your identity and place." - Dr. Mark Sorensen, STAR School, Arizona
