North Central SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
Food is Medicine
This informative book contains history and present day stories about how food is regarded as the medicine and economic staple of the Anishinaabeg people (an Ojibwe/Chippewa word meaning 'The People') of the Fond du Lac Reservation. Winona LaDuke (with assistance from Sarah Alexandria) wrote “Food is Medicine” which highlights her values of traditional agriculture and the importance of eating traditional foods. Written in conjunction with an NCR-SARE grant project, her Traditional Agriculture Restoration Program is an extension of her ongoing work to secure environmental, economic and social justice for the Anishinaabeg people.
