Improvements in health and nutrition initiatives in Indian Country were recently announced by the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI).

The Department of Indian Affairs (DOI) announced plans for the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to create Indigenous Food Hubs for BIE-operated schools and BIA-operated detention centers during a White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health on Sept. 27. These hubs will help Indigenous source foods, enhance culturally based healthy nutrition education, and boost training for healthy and culturally appropriate food preparation.
