Food Services – Tundra to Table
From “tundra to table™” we develop creative, carefully researched recipes and programs that maximize value without sacrificing quality or flavor. Our Alaska Native roots and values support our commitment to providing traditional and indigenous foods to our tribal clients. Every day, we see how traditional foods play an integral role not only in keeping indigenous people healthy, but in celebrating and promoting culture, heritage and traditional ways of life.
Through our food sourcing programs and understanding of the need for food sovereignty, NMS is committed to serving culturally-appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods. We believe in the right of indigenous people to define their own food and agricultural systems.
