Bridges cover: Diana Bird champions Indigenous food security

January 18, 2019

“We’re just making sure people are getting good quality food.”

The ability to buy and cook healthy food is a luxury not afforded to all; nor is a locally sourced diet.

Diana Bird believes wild, foraged, seasonal and homegrown foods are the way for Indigenous people to regain their health.

Bird uses her background in psychology and social work, combined with a passion for cooking, to help teach Indigenous people in Prince Albert how to eat better.

She does it through a multi-faceted approach: canning workshops and healthy, traditional meals via her catering company (she also ran a seasonal restaurant serving the same type of food). She teaches at First Nations’ health centres and cooks for elders when they are sick.
