Safe Food Practices in Carcross/Tagish First Nation

Author // Michael

Donna Geddes from Carcross/Tagish First Nation was trained in the Trainer the Trainer Food Preservation Workshop in Victoria early this year. What Donna learned there has a direct effect on the community; the tools she learned will help fight obesity and other health related risks. Earlier in the month Donna went into the elementary school to teach the youth how to eat healthy and how to preserve food safely. One of the major problems is lack of knowledge about healthy foods and how to keep them fresh for an extended period of time. The Train the Trainer workshop takes these issues head on by teaching not only what is healthy to eat but how to keep it preserved safely. Carcross/Tagish are learning new ways to keep food safe and thus ensuring that the future is a healthy one.
