We can all practice giving in reciprocity as we honour the role and importance of ancestral foods.

Medicine bundles - Nimide wayan

Food insecurity is a growing concern, and over many centuries Indigenous people have lost access to traditional food and lands for growing food. In Guelph and Wellington (and beyond) there are many Indigenous families experiencing the highest levels of food insecurity, with high rates of diabetes among households. At the same time, the community has Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and Elders who hold deep, centuries-old knowledge about ancestral foods and medicines that nourish. Together, more food and its healing properties are gathered with Indigenous families.

Medicine Bundles - Nimide Wayan moves forward these initiatives:

Together, let's gather a Medicine Bundle - Nimide Wayan

In collaboration and reciprocity, the Indigenous Food Sovereignty and Indigenous Food Security Collective/Circle and the team at Harvest Impact by 10C, have fostered relationships and continue to learn to walk alongside each other. And now we would like to share this journey with the whole community.

This is a “new” approach to gifting. To make a gift of support to Nimide Wayan, we ask that you begin to develop a relationship with the Indigenous Food Sovereignty and Indigenous Food Security Collective/Circle. For many reading this, who are used to clicking a button and donating, this will be new to you, and we welcome you along. Reach out to the team at Harvest Impact if you have questions. You may also wish to read this recent article.

As relationships are built together there will be opportunities to build appreciation by sharing and experiencing gatherings, packaging of ancestral foods and helping to prepare ancestral meals.

I honour this and would like to move forward.

Please tell us a bit about yourself and why you’d like to support Nimide Wayan.

A Smart Cities Circular Food Economy Project​

Inspired by the planet’s natural cycles, a circular food economy reorganizes and regenerates the systems that feed us, eliminating waste, replenishing our ecological systems, sharing economic prosperity, and nourishing our communities. In Guelph-Wellington, we are working to build a circular food economy that will achieve a 50% increase in access to affordable nutritious food, 50 new circular economy businesses and collaborations and a 50% increase in circular economic revenue by recognizing the value of waste.
