Aboriginal literacy and essential skills pilot project: Food safety and indigenous meal preparation on Vancouver Island (2013)

This curriculum is designed for use by adult learners, working with or without a tutor. It is aimed at people who want to safely prepare food for themselves and their families; find local food sources and promote traditional food harvesting; work in the food industry; or go on to take a course leading to a certificate in food safety.

Topics covered include the importance of food safety; traditional foods in the community; local seafood and fruit; food-borne illnesses and allergies; and safe handling of foods.

The document includes a number of self tests, and links to resources for further study.

The curriculum is part of the Aboriginal Literacy and Essential Skills (ALES) pilot project, designed to help First Nations communities on southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, to develop a culturally relevant learning vision.
