Building our Food Systems, Protecting Our Land, and Protecting our People
FEED works to expand programs to Native producers and consumers to increase the local food system and support Native farmers and ranchers at a larger community level. FEED expands the sustainable food movement so that food systems are led by and driven by Native American traditional knowledge that transforms the health and wellness of our people. FEED will provide technical assistance and a platform through the annual symposiums to share resources and expand the local food system.
