The Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project is working to achieve a world in which all Native people can access a nutritionally adequate and culturally appropriate diet from a sustainable food system that honors all living things, builds community capacity and increases the overall health of the land and people. The organization empowers community members to engage in food sovereignty by incorporating traditional food culture into their lives. This project promotes traditional foods in the community through many different programs such as the Enumclaw Farmer’s Market, Recovery House Medicinal Garden, Community Garden, Elders Farm-to-Table Project, Keta Creek Hatchery, Tribal School Fruit, Orchard and Vegetable Garden, Auburn Farmer’s Market, Tribal College Native Plants Trail and Berry Garden, and the White River Hatchery.
