The Michigan Food Access Collaborative improves access to healthy and nutritious foods for households with children ages 3-11 in the Hannahville Indian Community in Michigan. Through this project, they have created Nutrition Prescription monthly classes, hosted traditional community meals and ESI presentations, and even launched a "Smoothie Day" at the school to get youth excited about nutritious food at an early age. The Collaborative also offers gardening and canning classes and incentives for shopping at the local farmers market, all increasing access to healthy, local food.
