Food Policy in the Navajo Nation
The Navajo Food Policy Toolkit is a comprehensive guide of efforts to resolve the food crisis facing the Navajo Nation. It offers an analysis of traditional Navajo food and culture, an overview of current government and community structures involved in the food system, and numerous innovative solutions to increase production and consumption of healthy foods by the Navajo people.
The Toolkit is a wide-reaching resource for people working with the Navajo Nation. It is also an excellent case study of efforts to help a food insecure community with widespread illness due, in part, to its food habits.
