agAlaska, with the assistance of Alaska Village Initiatives and the First Nations Development Institute, is expanding its Food Security Assessment data collection. The assessment serves as a foundation for community-based conversations on how to develop and expand food security in the villages by empowering the process locally.
The assessment is used to understand food-related opportunities based on current challenges or to expand on successful programs. The agAlaska survey was adapted from the original study developed by the First Nations Development Institute and through reviewing similar surveys conducted in Native communities outside Alaska.
