Healthy Native Foods Articles

In efforts to raise community awareness of the Healthy Native Foods Project, its partners and the benefits of healthy eating within the American Indian community, AICAF is featuring local partners and their programs in a Healthy Native Food series in The Circle Newspaper, on facebook and twitter.

Each article highlights different initiatives that feature a Healthy Native Foods Champion, which we choose in relation to the article topic.
