Interior Voices

Dec 29, 2023

On today's episode, hosts Nicole Taylor-Sterritt and Jade Chaboyer-Kondra sit down with Savanna Brown, Direction, Quality Standards & Initiatives, to learn how Interior Health has integrated traditional Indigenous food options into Interior Health facilities. 

The legacy of colonization in Canada can be felt through the systemic inequities that remain, such as the loss of traditional foods for Indigenous peoples - food which is integral to Indigenous culture. Through the Traditional Food Initiative, Savanna's work has started with her own learning and unlearning journey including a Ministry of Health led piloted learning journey to introduce Indigenous foods into health care. In partnership with the Support Services leadership team, she looks forward to collaborating with Indigenous community members to understand their needs and help create a menu that embraces traditional recipes and their history.
