Big Pine Paiute Recieve Sustainable Food Grant!
- First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) announced it has awarded a new round of grants totaling $375,000 to 10 Native American organizations. The grants, made possible by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, were awarded under First Nations' Native Agriculture and Food Systems Initiative (NAFSI).
All of the projects aim to enhance Native control of local food systems especially in addressing issues such as food insecurity, food deserts, and health and nutrition while bolstering much-needed economic development in those communities.
The award amounts were $37,500 each.
The only California award was received by the Big Pine Paiute Tribe of Owens Valley, Big Pine, California for their Sustainable Food System Development Project.
