This is a food-based diabetes prevention and management program that seeks to improve the health outcomes for urban Indigenous people by increasing access, knowledge and skills around healthy eating, nutrition, traditional foods and traditional ways of knowing.

Services and programs include:
Life Skills programs (example: cooking classes, meal planning, label reading, food journaling)
Land based activities (example: berry picking, harvesting etc.)
Diabetes education and awareness (example: recipe and information sharing, nutrition bingo)
Access to food hampers and grocery supports
