Food Sovereignty Initiative is in Full Swing at Zuni Youth Enrichment Project

Even though fall has arrived, the Food Sovereignty initiative is still in full swing at the Zuni Youth Enrichment Project (ZYEP) on the Zuni Indian Reservation in New Mexico. As harvesting continues at family and community gardens across the Pueblo of Zuni, ZYEP’s Food Sovereignty team is busy with in-school learning at Zuni Public Schools, a new after-school program, monthly workshops, and cooking classes.
All of this is made possible with support from the Centers for Disease Control’s Tribal Practices for Wellness in Indian Country, Native American Agriculture Fund, New Mexico Department of Health, Newman’s Own Foundation, and Whole Kids Foundation.
