The Indigenous Food Network is a group of organizations with a shared mission: to spread traditional Native foods throughout the Twin Cities community and surrounding areas. The IFN connects food producers, chefs, organizations, and tribes, in order to create a coordinated effort to improve access to healthy and indigenous foods. The IFN wants to combat health issues, such as diabetes, by reversing out the colonized diet and reintroducing traditional food into the diet and into the community. This includes teaching youth about traditional and culturally appropriate food practices.
