Initiatives

Food Security Initiatives  

As part of the ADI  2013/14 workplan, the Ontario First Nations Integrated Health Promotions Strategy, (which helps direct ADI programming in Ontario Region),  wished to evaluate how ADI food security funds were being utilised.

With that in mind, we invited all communities to submit their community food security story in pictures describing activities that their community conducted around food security with the help of ADI funds. We received 17 entries of which 3  communities have been  invited to present their project at the 8th Annual Chiefs of Ontario Health Forum, in Toronto, February 25th - 27th, 2014.  Communities were chosen on the uniqueness of their project by members of the OFNIHPS. It's these  3 communities submissions that I have sent you today.
