PPN Head Start Education: Eating the Rainbow

Pinoleville’s Wellness Department recently began collaborating with Lake County Tribal Health for youth healthy eating education.

Lake County generously shared their ‘Eating the Rainbow’ curriculum with Pinoleville. PPN Wellness and Environmental Departments coordinated to adapt the ‘Eating the Rainbow’ curriculum to include Northern Pomo and resources from our Community Garden.

See the attachments above of our adapted curriculums and the Northern Pomo words introduced to our Pinoleville Native American Head Start students and parents. Learn some Northern Pomo below!
