For far too long, tribal communities have been disconnected from their lands and resources. This has separated many from their traditional foods, putting tribal culture and health in peril. The result has been an increase in chronic illness, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Food scan was completed on behalf of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, which has a long standing commitment to improving health equity and supporting food systems change. This scan is only a snapshot of the good work happening in tribal communities across the country, and could never be complete. Every day things are changing, people are building upon what we know and bettering their local food systems.
