The purpose of this program is to support work contributing to building a national movement that will fulfill a vision of Native communities and food systems that are self-directed, well-resourced, and supported by community policies and systems. This program targets emerging projects that focus on developing tribal food sovereignty, and ultimately, the funding agency aims to support Native communities as they fortify traditional food systems; seek to increase access to healthy and fresh foods; increase awareness of and involvement with where food comes from; expand knowledge of the linkages between foods and Native culture; and/or contribute to tribal economic growth and development of entrepreneurially related food ventures.
