This program develops resources and initiatives to promote the healthy foods and delicious eating traditions of African Heritage for good health and community. There are both adult programs and children's programs.


From the author regarding cost information:

"In 2019, we moved into the next phase of our heritage diet programming and began licensing it on an annual basis. Organizations interested in teaching A Taste of African Heritage or A Children’s Taste of African Heritage can license each curriculum annually, which allows the licensee to download and print the curriculum and required entrance/exit surveys. Contact us to learn more. Alternatively, organizations and interested teachers can purchase the printed adult student handbooks and teacher’s manual and children’s student handbooks and teacher’s manual in our webstore with or without a license."
