We’re pleased to announce that we’ll have two sessions featuring the African Heritage Diet at the upcoming Child Nutrition Conference, April 14-16, 2020 in Atlanta. One session is on “Addressing Health Disparities with Cultural Food Programs,” presented with ACTOAH instructor Marvin Young, of Prairie View A&M University Cooperative Extension in Texas, and another session is on “Cultivating Cultural Awareness through Food,” presented with Chef Coleen Donnelly, of InHarvest in Minnesota.
We've re-organized our African Heritage webpages to make them more user-friendly for teachers, students, and anyone interested in African Heritage diets. Check out the Teacher's Portal and other new features here.
In 2019 we moved to the next phase of our heritage diet programming and began licensing the program on an annual basis. This means that to teach the classes, organizations can either purchase an annual subscription/license to the digital curriculum, or purchase the printed handbooks in our webstore. (A limited number of free scholarship licenses are also available.)
