Healthy Native Foods Media Package

As a part of the Healthy Native Foods initiative AICAF has provided traditional foods and healthy eating educational content for 6 articles along with accompanying Facebook and Twitter posts. They have been distributed to all 11 Minnesota tribes and urban areas free of charge and they are available here for download. The articles and social media posts can be used however each community sees fit, i.e. print or online newspaper/letter, educational hand out, brochures, mailings, waiting area messaging, etc. Each community is encouraged to personalize the articles with pictures and local program details.
