Miigwech, Niá:wen to Wade Henry, Mohawk, Six Nations of the Grand River, for your heartfelt gift and genuine artistic expression of the truth and healing we all hope for in each other.

Sustainably Grown

Do our methods for growing and making food bring our ancestors peace? Are we protecting future generations and their food sovereignty?


Are we reaching the hungry? Are we adapting to community needs?

Nutrient Dense

Is our food our medicine? Is our food leading to health (food source, choices, cooking methods, our relationship with food)?

Culturally Safe

Does it help us connect? Does it remove barriers and help us to hear? Does it lead to peace?
