The Oneida Community Integrated Food Systems (OCIFS) group is here as a team
to help families by housing a community food system that will include traditional
food products and help create a local economy that will provide jobs, and promote
and encourage long term solutions to farm and nutrition issues on the Oneida
The OCIFS group is tirelessly working to improve the Oneida Nations quality of food,
educating them about food related health risks, increasing employment and youth
opportunities, and assisting in bringing people closer together around food.
